Natasha went on holiday with her mum to Greece. While she was there she met a local boy who befriended her and gained her trust.
Natasha thought she was in love but this man abused her trust by making her perform sex work. He took her money, her passport and increased his control over her through threats and violence.
It was four years until Natasha was able to escape and get help in a hospital. Safe and Free helped Natasha to secure her freedom and start her journey to recovery.
