Warning: Kya's story discusses sexual assault which may be triggering for some people. Please visit our "Where to get Help" page for details on support available in New Zealand.
Kya was betrayed by someone she trusted. Someone she thought was a friend
But this person sold her to traffickers. Before long, Kya found herself being forced to work in the sex trade. She became so sick that her traffickers had no choice but to take her to a local clinic. A nurse contacted the South African National Trafficking Hotline and A21 were able to provide her with support and a safe place during her three months of treatment.
Kya is now free and has been reunited with her family.
