A 24 year old human trafficking victim, has revealed her heart breaking experience as she claims to have been rap ed 43,000 times when she was only 16 – after being groomed at age 12..Karla Jacinto, from Mexico, estimates she was forced to sleep with at least 30 men a day over four years as a young teenager with some of her attackers even “uniformed police officers” – as well as judges, priests and pastors. She says she was first targeted at the age of 12 by a trafficker who prized her away from her dysfunctional family with gifts and money.
Karla was eventually taken to Guadalajara, one of Mexico’s biggest cities, and forced to work as a prost itute. Karla, who was eventually rescued in 2008 as part of an anti-trafficking operation in Mexico City, has spent years recovering from the deep emotional wounds and harrowing memories of sexual abuse and has become a human rights activist. Karla now travels the world giving help and advice to other victims of sexual slavery – even meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican to discuss the issue.
