Demi Moore fights trafficking in Nepal

Kathmandu - Hollywood star Demi Moore shot a documentary about human trafficking in Nepal, also participating in efforts to rescue several of the modern-day slaves, local media reported on Friday.

Moore, who wrapped up her five-day visit on Thursday, worked on a film for the news channel CNN's Freedom Project in cooperation with a local organisation, Maiti Nepal. The Nepali activists fight trafficking in women and children and help rehabilitate trafficking victims.

"I am not here as a celebrity but just as a human being concerned with the sufferings of other human beings," Moore told Kantipur TV. "I might be American and you might be Nepali, but the pain we share is the same."

Moore, 48, travelled to remote districts and also participated in the rescue of four trafficked girls from the Nepal-India border.

The actress has started a campaign "Real men don't buy girls" as a part of the Demi and Ashton Foundation, which she runs with her husband, Ashton Kutcher. The organisation aims to eliminate trafficking of children for sex.

Moore, one of the highest-paid Hollywood stars in the 1990s, starred in films like Charlie's Angels, Ghost and Indecent Proposal.
