Nuns working through human trafficking advocate group Talitha Kum have been infiltrating human trafficking organizations to save women and girls from lives as sex slaves and prostitutes.
Human trafficking became so widespread that Catholic nuns infiltrated the organization by posing as sex slaves in an effort to rescue captive women (AFP/Getty Images).
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Over a period of eleven years, 1,100 "religious sisters" have covered eighty countries to work undercover to save women sold into slavery.
Studzinski specified he was "not trying to be sensational," with his use of the words "dark forces." Rather, he claims he is "trying to underscore the fact this is a world that has lost innocence."
He described extreme cases of women enslaved as prostitutes and were forced to have sex with ten men at the same time. One woman was locked away for one week without food and was forced to eat her own feces when she was unable to meet the demand of servicing 12 clients each day.
The nuns have resolved to save as many women as they can. They even dress as prostitutes and walk the streets to blend in with the nearby brothels.

Children sold into slavery by their parents in Africa, the Phillipines, Brazil and India were purchased by the religious sisters with money raised by Talitha Kum. The nuns are currently working on acquiring a network of homes in those countries to shelter the children they save.
Studzinski said, "This is a new network of houses for children around the world who would otherwise be sold into slavery. It is shocking but it is real."
Talitha Kum estimates one percent of the world's population is trafficked in some form, which is roughly 73 million people. Of that number, 70 percent are women and half are 16-years-old or younger.
Studzinski told the Trust Women Conference on women's rights and trafficking, "These are problems caused by poverty and equality but it goes well beyond that."
"You can't generalize about trafficking and slavery as no two countries are the same," Studzinski said. Meanwhile, the religious sisters continue to save victims of human trafficking and sexual abuse. To learn more about helping the Talitha Kum and the nuns, please visit the Talitha Kum website.
