Martin's Mission To Stop Child Trafficking
Pop star RICKY MARTIN has travelled to Cambodia to help in the fight against child trafficking. The Latin singer arrived in the country on Wednesday (26Mar08) and has already visited various projects run by non-governmental organisations fighting child trafficking and sexual exploitation. Angel Saltos, executive director of the Ricky Martin Foundation, says, "This is a fact-finding mission for us. He wanted to see for himself." Martin learned of Cambodia's child trafficking problems in February (08) during a three-day United Nations conference in Vienna. He joined actress Emma Thompson and Egyptian first lady Suzanne Mubarak in calling for action.
