Myanmar women, girls trafficked as 'brides' to China May 01, 2019

The Myanmar and Chinese governments have failed to stem the trafficking of ethnic Kachin women and girls as “brides” to families in China. 

Survivors of trafficking said that trusted people, including family members, promised them jobs in China — but they instead were sold for the equivalent of US$3,000 to $13,000 to Chinese families. In China, they were typically locked in a room and raped so they would become pregnant.
