Senhoa Lotus Gala

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 4, 2010) -

Lotus Gala 2010

MC Thuy Duong of Asia Entertainment, Inc. hosts the Senhoa Lotus Gala 2010 in support of victims of human trafficking in South East Asia. Join our many Canadian dignitaries including Joe Pantalone and our community business leaders at the luxurious Le Parc Dining Banquet on Saturday, March 6th. Thanh Bui, Australian Idol Finalist, leads an impressive line-up of entertainers for an inspiring evening of lively music and theatrical performances.

The Reason

Cambodia is ranked as a Tier II and on the Watch List by the US State Department in their Trafficking in Person's Report dated June, 2009. In the same report, it was noted that "Cambodia is a source, destination, and transit country for women and children trafficked for the purposes of sexual exploitation..."

It has been estimated that the number of ethnic-minority women, who are forced into sex work, represent as high as 30% of the total number of commercial sex workers. Even more demoralizing is the increase in the sale of children's virginity, from undocumented families.

Then Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, said: "Trafficking in persons is a modern-day form of slavery… Defeating human trafficking is a great moral calling of our day". Whether these victims are from East or West, they are all our children. Join our chorus today.

Planting the seeds…

Senhoa supports victims of human trafficking by providing income-generating opportunities, social reintegration and programs for self-empowerment. Our mission is to provide:

Income-generation so that vulnerable women can gain economic independence

Educational and social programs for intellectual empowerment

Business sensibilities to achieve humanitarian goals

100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly to the rescue, rehabilitation, and education of young women sold into slavery in South East Asia.
