Sex Tourism Involving Children

In Acapulco, Mexico children are being trapped in prostituion. Many of the children leave abusive homes or are in extreme poverty. A lot of other children are unwillingly put into prostitution by "pimps." The children are all extremely drugged and do not know what is going on most of the time. They continue to drug them so they do not realize their circumstances. Most of the customers are foreigners who arrive on cruise ships or are staying at nearby resorts. Shelters have been started to save these children and provide them with health and psychological needs.
