Somaly Mam was born in the Mondulkiri province of Cambodia. Therefore, she lived in extreme poverty, and her family was very desperate to survive. Because of this, Somaly Mam was sold into a sex brothel at a very young age. There, she had been tortured and raped, along with many other women and children, for many years. She finally had enough of living in such a lifestyle, when she had seen one of her close friends get brutally murdered. She escaped from the brothel, and moved abroad.

The Somaly Mam foundation’s goal is to give victims and survivors a voice in their lives, free victims, stop or finish slavery, and authorize survivors as they make and support lives of nobility. They are willing to confine slavery.
