I am humbled and grateful for the journalism award given to me today for my documentary series on human slavery in China, Hong Kong and Thailand.
I received the 2013 International Human Rights Press Award (TV Merit) from the Foreign Correspondents’ Club, the Hong Kong Journalists Association & Amnesty International HK.
I dream of seeing the end of human slavery and child exploitation in our generation. I’ve done due diligence on dozens of NGOs that work on fighting slavery and poverty and I vouch for and help raise funds for the work of Hong Kong-based The Mekong Club the leading anti-trafficking NGO & campaigner that mobilizes corporations, schools and churches to fight slavery in Hong Kong and the region. It’s led by prominent international expert Matt Friedman. Matt has more than 20 years of experience and is the author of 9 books including some on human trafficking (Google Matthew S. Friedman). Here’s Matt Friedman’s inspiring TED talk: http://youtu.be/iU9TeVofkDo
