Marina Transchel is the founder of the Ukrainian NGO, Path to Freedom Organization. She herself was a victim and was trafficked with her sister. She managed to escape and rescue her sister and prosecute her traffickers. Her sister died later from a mysterious car accident. These setbacks didnt stop her from trying to help other just like her.

The girls who are recruited and trafficked have no idea what theyre signing up for. They are desperate for a job so they dont question its logistics. They sadly dont figure out what theyve done until itstoo late. This a real story told by the girl who was trafficked unwillingly and survived. Her true identity is a secret for her own safety so she can tell her entire story. Even with all these precautions Marina still might be holding parts of her story back in fear of being caught or not wanting to relive her horrors. In order to get a better idea we should look at more documentaries .
