Karla Jacinto, a former victim of sexual abuse and human trafficking is not just surviving, she's thriving - as a human rights activist who speaks against modern-day slavery. CNN's Rafael Romo reports. (CNN)

A victim of human trafficking who was raped at least ‘43,000 times’ at the age of 16 – after being groomed at age 12 – now travels the world as a passionate human rights activist helping other young women escape the global pandemic of modern day slavery.

While narrating her ordeal, The Mirror UK, quoted Karla Jacinto, from Mexico, as estimating that she was forced to sleep with at least 30 men a day for over four years as a young teenager.

She was eventually rescued in 2008 as part of an anti-trafficking operation in Mexico City.

She now travels the globe helping other women to recover from being trafficked and even met Pope Francis to raise awareness of the pandemic affecting her home city where an estimated 20,000 women fall prey to traffickers, according to the International Organisation for Migration.

CNN reports that Karla is now in fact “not just surviving, she’s thriving” as a human rights activist speaking out against modern-day slavery.
