Lindsay Lohan's Journey in India

Lindsay Lohan visited India to investigate child traficking in a programme shown on BBC 3 on 1 April 2010.  She discovered that sometimes parents hand their children to the trafickers and of course the answer for why they do so was poverty.  She met boys who had been rescued from factories in the slums of Delhi and she also went to West Bengal.

By the end of the film Lindsay Lohan was shocked by what she had seen and wanted to know what she and others can do to try to bring an end to this exploitation of childen.  She had surely raised awareness and concern in many viewers but she realised that one film can only do so much and that the campaigning needs to continue.
