Demi Moore broke down in tears after witnessing a young mother be reunited with her daughter as part of her documentary on sex trafficking.
The Ghost actress headed to Nepal and India to work with campaigner Anuradha Koirala, who fights against the trafficking of women on the boarder between the two countries.

In the CNN documentary, entitled Nepal’s Stolen Children, Moore met with one woman who had been forced to work in a brothel, where her young daughter was also kept hostage. Police managed to save the mother during a raid, but did not remove the daughter.

Officials eventually did rescue the young girl, and Moore was witness to their reunion – but was left in tears when the girl failed to recognise her mother.

Moore says, “As a mother of three girls myself, it was painful to watch, and everyone in the room feels helpless”.

The documentary aired on Sunday.
