Resilience and Hope
This video production by Preda Foundation shows the life and recovery of the teenagers who were rescued from human traffickers and the horrors of abuse and sexual exploitation. They live in a happy, therapeutic community having fun and discover their dignity and grow in self-confidence with resilience and hope for a better, happier life.
The video shows the Emotional Release Therapy pioneered by Preda that enables them to release their buried pain and anger and be empowered to testify against their abusers. They continue their education and eventual reintegration to a life of value and dignity.
