Ricky Martin joins fight against child traffickingMarch 30th, 2008 - 4:46 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Mar 30 (ANI): Pop singer Ricky Martin travelled all the way to Cambodia to lend a helping hand in the fight against child trafficking.
Martin, who arrived in the country on Wednesday 26 Mar, has already visited various projects run by non-governmental organisations that are involved in the fight against child trafficking and sexual exploitation.
“This is a fact-finding mission for us. He wanted to see for himself,” Contactmusic quoted Angel Saltos, executive director of the Ricky Martin Foundation, as saying.
Martin, who is the Goodwill Ambassador to UNICEF, came to know about Cambodia’s child trafficking problems in February (08), during a three-day United Nations conference in Vienna.
