How bras help human trafficking survivors in Mozambique : new The CNN Freedom Project documentary

The CNN Freedom Project will debut this week its newest documentary "Mozambique or Bust", which highlights how the Denver-base d charity  Free The Girls: Fight Human Trafficking uses a very unusual weapon in the fight against modern-day slavery.


 

Free the Girls collects donated bras from around the US for sex trafficking survivors to sell in used clothing markets of Mozambique, where the undergarments are luxury items and sell for top dollar.

 

"Mozambique or Bust" is the story of four ordinary people coming together to do something extraordinary, and how their efforts are changing the lives of women around the world.

 

The film is narrated by Mira Sorvino, UNODC Goodwill Ambassador to Combat Human Trafficking, and will air on CNN international on Friday, February 15 at 1630 GMT, Saturday February 16 at 1400GMT and 2130 GMT.
