Please remember, you don't have to be a Ricky Martin fan to help. All you need is compassion.


So many kids are daily forced to work in prostitution, torn away from their homes and families, and tricked into terrible situations they had never been able to foresee. No one deserves to be abused in such a way, especially not these innocent children.

It's a terrible thing that young children, who only tried to make a little money for their families, or simply tried to stay alive, got abused in such a horrible way by people who took advantage of them. Within 10 years, trafficking in people will be the biggest problem of our society, even exceeding drugs and arms trafficking with that. It's time to do something about it. Having given his support to many charities, like the Sabera Foundation, Ricky Martin has now started People For Children.

People for Children is a project of the Ricky Martin Foundation, located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. PFC educates and informs through internationally syndicated public service announcements. Beside, the project funds community based programs which monitor and combat a range of problems relating to the exploitation of children, with a focus on sex trafficking. The organization is also active monitoring and combating areas including debt labor, forced labor, modern day slavery, and prostitution of children. People for Children actively promotes and supports the redemption of exploited children as well as children vulnerable to sex trafficking, and the project provides assistance to the victims and their families.

Do you have doubts of how bad might be the problem? Ricky chose some very dark examples from what the FBI and the Human Trafficking Office of the US Department of State found so you can imagine it:

- Several months ago, a man was arrested in Central America because he paid $10000 to have sex with an 8-month old baby.
- A doctor was giving drugs to the children when they were attending his office, he took pornographic pictures and later he sold them at Internet.
- In USA, 4000 people paid $15000 dollars on the Internet to see how a father was violating his daughter. And the double, 8000 people paid double money to see how the father was killing later his daughter.
"I can't stay quiet with this", Ricky summarizes with sadness but determination. And you, can you stay quiet?

Yes, please everyone do it. It's so easy to do and even doesn't take too much time. You might can save some children's life with this.
