Girls saved from the sex slave industry

SITTING next to a six-year-old girl inside a brothel in the derelict back streets of Thailand, Mia Munro was reminded how lucky most young Australians are.

The 38-year-old ambassador for Destiny Rescue, an organisation existing to end child sexual slavery, said she didn't always want to be involved in aid work.

"I had one of those defining moments watching a speaker on stage," she said.

"I flew to Thailand and Cambodia for 10 days to see for myself."

Ms Munro said she wasn't ready for what she saw in Thailand.

"I cried every day for 10 days," she said.

"Standing in a town in Thailand I saw the whole process of trafficking and girls being sold.

"That's when I made the decision that I was going to be a part of the solution."

Ms Munro, who moves between Caloundra and Brisbane, has released a music video she produced about the lives of small girls saved from the human trafficking and sex slave industry.
