Sex tourism in Thailand remains a huge social problem in the country. The industry is worth about 4 billion dollars a year, and the International Labour Organization or ILO estimates that 12,000 minors are trafficked overseas annually. But there is hope for Thai women. Sister Sutisa Utalum has helped to rescue over 4,000 Thai women from prostitution and sex traffickers in recent years. She has devoted her life to helping women forced into prostitution and begins by telling Gerry Adams, about a girl recently rescued from the Persian Gulf island of Bahrain.
