 On August 14 and 15, eight of our OBV girls interviewed with STREETS International, a high-acclaimed and prestigious culinary and hospitality training program in Hoi An, Vietnam. STREETS International is internationally credentialed by the award winning Institute of C...

I was first introduced to One Body Village (USA) in 2011 when I visited Vietnam for the first time with my family. My parents struggled to make ends meet since they came to Canada in the 1970s and I grew up with very little. I graduated from Nursing and decided to work...

I always thought that sex trafficking was the most heinous and incomparable crime until I came face to face with rescued victims of organ harvesting. Worse yet, I met sweet little children who were solely raised as livestock to gut, butcher, and dismember. My focus on...

Each reunion with the girls always seem better than the last. Their sweet faces, playful laughter, and bubbly energy pull at every string of my heart and every moment spent together is like a dream. This year was no exception. I saw familiar faces and new ones alike. T...

Today we gathered in a modest and beautiful parish in rural Bien Hoa, where Father Tich led us to a separate room in the back of his church. There, he opened a fridge filled with countless containers of bloody fetuses that were prepared for burial. It is well known tha...

Reuniting with the girls is always my favorite part of my mission with One Body Village. It has been four years since I was first introduced to OBV by my dear friend Kelly. I experience feelings of dread, anger, sorrow, and an overwhelming tightness in my chest every t...

The highly urbanized and sophisticated island of Singapore is not immune to child sex slavery (well, no country is). I would think that traffickers and other bad bandits would scare away in a land where even chewing gum and spitting on the street is illegal. Wrong! OBV...
