From the United States to Brazil, from the country of destination to the country of departure: un grito por la vida [a cry for life] is the name of the network born in 2007 and linked to the Conference of Religious of Brazil which fights trafficking and sexual exploitation. Within this project a group of religious has presented what emerged from a visit paid last April to two municipalities of the Rio Negro Region in Brazilian Amazonia, whose population is largely indigenous: here too the number of victims of trafficking is constantly increasing. The stories that emerged are shocking, especially in the cases in which the victims are little boys and girls who suffer their first abuse in the family. Women religious have also reported the poor coordination between the various organizations, some of them linked to public institutions, which work to protectthe victims.
