– “Yelm Woman’s Organization Gives Human Trafficking Survivors a New Life”
“Any mother can relate to the desire to get her children back if they have been taken from her. For some, that might result from a court hearing or a custody battle, but for one young woman whom Yelm resident Kali Basi encountered in Nepal, the challenge was more daunting. “She’s the mother of two children who were sold into the human trafficking industry by her husband,” says Basi. “She wants to stand on her feet, be independent and hopefully get her children back.”
Helping such women regain their lives has become a mission for Basi, a fashion designer, who has spent the last year setting up programs abroad for victims of human trafficking. Originally from New Zealand, she owns Kali Basi Design, offering unique handmade clothing created from natural fibers and recycled fabrics.”
