Trafficking of women and children is a serious problem in China. In 2011 Chinese police rescued over 24,000 women and children who otherwise would have been sold for adoption or forced into prostitution, some as far away as Angola.
China’s Ministry of Public Security reported on its website that police across the country had rescued 8,660 children and 15,458 women in 2011–all victims of trafficking.
