“I’m not here as a celebrity but just as a human being. I might be American and you might be Nepali but the pain we share is the same. Girl trafficking cannot be stopped by Anuradha’s efforts alone; we need the support of everyone.”

Oh what a line from Demi moore remarks while in visit to Nepal! Oh yes if you still wondering, it’s just because Demi moore didn’t visit Nepal as a celebrity. In her own words she visited Nepal more as a human being and importantly to tackle a global problem of modern day human trafficking and slavery.

Yes, Demi Moore was in Nepal for past few days to film a documentary for the CNN Freedom Project aimed to end modern day slavery. Moore was accompanied by Anuradha Koirala, CNN hero of Nepal in her five day visit. Moore was also spotted with Rajesh Payal Rai in Bhairahawa.

Demi Moore visited some places of Nepal including Bhairahawa and Lumbini. But as her visit was totally of girls trafficking problem orientated, she visited Bhairahawa and Lumbini along with Anuradha Koirala to see her work and get inspired from her.

Moore, 48,  a hugely popular actor in the 1990s is also the founder of DNA (Demi and Ashton) Foundation that aims at eliminating the trading of young children for sex. Moore introduced Anuradha Koirala on stage at the CNN Heroes award ceremony held in New York and here in Nepal Anuradha was introducing Demi Moore in the press conference.

Here are some of the Images seen on Media after Demi Moore’s visit to Nepal.

I knew Demi Moore was in town following some tweets from Kathmandu tweeples but was surprised not to see any of our big papers making it headlines. Our Nepali main stream media really suck when it comes to reporting other than the never ending political saga of the country. However, the Media on Friday is full of Demi Moore and I think the only thing that inspired to cover this story was “Demi Moore’s visit with Mr Jhalanath Khanal “(this too being politically inclined).

And BTW, she didn’t visit Nepal for the Tourism Year 2011. Nevertheless she revealed plans coming back to Nepal along with her husband and explore some beautiful places in Nepal. Moore left Kathmandu by a dragon air flight to Hong Kong yesterday (Thursday).


  1. She is just rich and trying to validate her wealth for her lack of acting and cradle robbing, we have so many problems here in the states i could care less

  2. Sau Chuhe khane ke bad billy chali Haaj ko. After Eating a 100 mouse Cat wants to go to Heaven

  3. Billy, at least Demi is doing something about the problem. What about you? critizing is always easy.

  4. Just be thankful for what she is doing even if she has different motives. There are hardly any people to help those women and girls who were treated worse than animal. it’s easy to yap or criticize someone through your computer and i bet that when it’s your turn to help those helpless, you won’t even look it them. So if you can’t do anything, just keep quiet.

  5. Demi Moore work represents all the women who suffer from slavery even in their own
    homes because man are making fell women less so is not only in Nepal is everywhere.
    Demi Moore is showing to the world that man minds is very sick even the ones who claim
    to be educated . Poverty in Nepal is a huge factor but money in America is a big factor to.

    Nepal’s Supreme Court has recently ordered the release of a woman forcibly held by the anti-trafficking group, Maiti Nepal. The Court ordered the charity to stop forcibly ‘counseling’ the victim in an effort to cure her ‘lesbianism.’ The victim was detained against her will for 50 days prior to her release. The court ruled that Maiti Nepal was illegally detaining Rajani Shahi, 30, on the grounds that they wanted to provide her counseling to change her sexual orientation,” Hari Phuyal the lead legal counsel said.

    AFP has run the story, which can be found here.
