Actress Demi Moore has joined with the CNN Freedom Project to call attention to the trade of human life in ‘Nepal’s Stolen Children: A CNN Freedom Project Documentary.’

As a special contributor to the project, Moore traveled to Nepal to join her organization, Maiti Nepal, which has reportedly rescued 12,000 stolen Nepalese children from sex trafficking since it was founded in 1993.

The film airs Sunday, June 26 at 8 p.m. (ET)

It won’t be an easy watch. “At the brothel, I was forced to have sex with men and if I argued they would burn cigarettes on my body and beat me with a stick or spill hot water on me.  I went with my baby son, but we were separated and when he cried they burned his tongue with a cigarette,” said Radika, one of the rescued girls Moore meets at Maiti Nepal.
