2009 EWOP Book Club

With 2009 upon us, we are hoping many will want to join us in our new Book Club as we educate ourselves on the subject of Human Trafficking. The first book we will read together is one just published in 2008 by Somaly Mam called THE ROAD OF LOST INNOCENCE. (You can order it now by clicking on the link.) It gives a very heart-wrenching account of her life and the struggle to set others free from sexual slavery in Cambodia. I believe this book will be a valuable tool to enable each of us to better understand this injustice. From our readings and discussions, I hope we all can be better informed to explain this cause we have decided to give our hearts and resources towards in making a change.

In the next few days, I will be posting a quote or posing a question concerning this book to start us looking and asking some of the hard questions and ways we can make a difference right where we are.

It is a very powerful story of a Cambodian heroine.
