Supporting her family by selling her body on the streets since the age of 14, Christina has reportedly fallen into the hands of traffickers since this photo was taken in February. On a mud wall in the corner of the back room where Stefania Nastrut lives with her father, the names of the brothers and sisters she never sees are written in a colorful teenage scrawl.
