Longdy was trafficked age 8 from Cambodia to Thailand and forced to beg on the streets. He had contracted polio as a young child and lost the use of his legs which was the reason he was targeted for trafficking to earn money as a beggar.
In this interview we hear Longdy's unique perspective on life which results from the circumstances of a childhood that none of us can imagine. Modern day slavery and trafficking is happening today and this interview opens up an understanding of how that happens. Eventually he ended up being cared for by Hagar and so we also hear about the work that they do for people like Longdy. We also hear about what his life has changed to become as a result of being looked after.
Thanks to the Hagar team for arranging the logistics for this interview and in particular Don and Anna.
