CBN's Operation Blessing International is helping in the fight child abuse and trafficking in Brazil.
Hundreds of teens filled the streets of 11 cities across Brazil recently to raise awareness of the growing problem.
Each person participating in the event held a candle. Every 15 seconds a small group of people blew out their candles, which represented the fact that every 15 seconds a child in Latin America is sexually abused.
This year's cities were chosen because they will be the host cities of the 2014 World Cup Soccer tournament.
Big sporting events like the World Cup attract what's called sexual tourism and it only increases the nation's problem.
Find out how you can help Operation Blessing fight child abuse and trafficking in Brazil, Latin America and around the world.
