Washington, Aug 7 (ANI): Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon, who is known for her work with UNICEF and other various humanitarian organizations, is now speaking out against human sex trafficking in a new campaign aimed at raising funds for victims.

“I just find the whole idea of sex trafficking with children is a nightmare you can’t even believe is real,” CBS News quoted Sarandon as saying.

In a joint effort with The Body Shop, Sarandon is speaking out against an issue, which many have pushed to the shadows.

And, as she is quick to note, the child sex trade is prevalent everywhere, even where some may not expect.

“Sex trafficking happens everywhere. People profit from it who are also connected to governments. It’s definitely exists within the United States…Kids coming from other countries. The problem exists right here,” Sarandon said. (ANI)
