Mozambique or Bust: A CNN Freedom Project Documentary
In February 2012, the CNN Freedom Project highlighted the efforts of “Free the Girls,” a small Denver-based charity with a very unusual weapon in the war against modern-day slavery. They collect donated bras in the U.S. for sex trafficking survivors to sell in the used clothing markets of Mozambique. Bras are a luxury item there, and can sell for top dollar. When we first reported the story, “Free the Girls” had collected more than 20,000 bras and couldn’t afford to ship them to Africa. But one CNN viewer saw the story and took action, triggering a chain reaction of kindness and goodwill. This is the story of four ordinary people, coming together to do something extraordinary.

Narrated by Mira Sorvino, UNODC Goodwill Ambassador to Combat Human Trafficking.

PRODUCER: Lisa Cohen (Atlanta)
