Jackie Chan meets young trafficking survivors in Myanmar

UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and martial arts icon Jackie Chan concluded a three-day visit to Myanmar. He met hundreds of children, many of whom survived trafficking, are growing up without parents, are forced to live and work on the streets or are affected by HIV.

“The children I have met in Myanmar have inspired me,” said Jackie Chan. “The boys and girls who had been trafficked, their optimism and determination to build better lives for themselves has deeply impressed me.

While in Mandalay, Jackie met with 12 year old “Zaw” who was trafficked to Malaysia at 12 to work as a beggar. He also met with “Mimi” was sold by traffickers twice when she was 10 and again at 17.

“The stories these children shared with me showed me once again that we need to do a better job protecting children – especially against the horrific crimes of trafficking,” said Jackie Chan.
