Taken is an action packed story about a retired CIA agent who travels across Europe to save his teenage daughter who has been kidnapped by sex traffickers. The movie has a Hollywood ending with the traffickers getting the justice they deserve and Liam Neeson successfully rescuing his daughter who seems to suffer no lasting trauma from her experience. The film was released in 2008 and grossed nearly US$150 million.
While it is true that some comparatively wealthy Western women and girls are trafficked into the global billion-dollar rape for profit industry, the huge majority come from the developing world. They are vulnerable due to poverty, gender inequality, racism, corruption and globalisation. Typically when these young women are trafficked, their father is either absent, complicit or completely lacks the resources and/or skills to know where to even start.Read more

In South East Asia we are now also employing a small team of very experienced investigators who have during the past ten years rescued several hundred women and children from sex trafficking.

This Christmas like every other, people all around the world will join together in singing “O Holy Night”. The beautiful words of this Christmas Carol are incredibly powerful; “Truly He taught us to love one another, His law is love and His gospel is peace. Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother. And in his name all oppression shall cease.”
The Nvader team has just returned from their first deployment to SE Asia and we are very thankful to report it was a tremendous success. On the very first night the Nvader team were being shown around the red light district by a local NGO. They met two African women who had both been promised jobs overseas working in a restaurant. Upon arrival in SE Asia they had their passports taken and were told that they each had to pay a US$5,000 debt by selling their bodies. They protested but after a week with no provisions and no way of getting home, they acquiesced.Read more
