Nuns Pose As Prostitutes To Combat Evil

For the last 11 years, around 1,100 nuns or "religious sisters" have been traveling the world pretending to be prostitutes on street corners and in brothels as they attempt to help save women and children held prisoner by human traffickers.

John Studzinski, who leads Talitha Kum, the organization that provides the sisters is almost doubling the countries it works in to 140. Studzinski, a vice chairman of U.S. investment bank The Blackstone Group, said, "I'm not trying to be sensational but I'm trying to underscore the fact that this is a world that has lost innocence...where dark forces are active."

He shared the story of one woman who was locked up for a week without food and forced to eat her own feces when she did not meet her pimp's target of 12 clients each day.

In another harsh example, one woman was forced to have sex with a group of 10 men at the same time. Studzinski also said, "These sisters do not trust anyone. They do not trust governments, they do not trust corporations, and they don't trust the local police. In some cases they cannot trust male clergy. They work in brothels. No one knows they are there."

In addition, the sisters set up a network of homes in Africa, the Philippines, Brazil and India to help children being sold into slavery by their parents. In fact, the religious sisters of Talitha Kum raised the money to purchase these children.

Studzinski went on to say "This is a new network of houses for children around the world who would otherwise be sold into slavery. It is shocking but it is real."

The group believes that one percent of the world's population, or around 73 million people, is trafficked in some form. Of that group, around 70 percent are women and half are aged 16 or younger. Studzinski said the religious sisters will do anything to rescue women, including dressing up as prostitutes and assimilating into brothels.

Studzinski added that Talitha Kum, which means 'arise child' in Aramic, is now being hired by companies to see what is going on with the supply chain.
