Having heard about Elanie Kruger's fate in 2012, Hykie Berg contacted her and they agreed to meet at a restaurant in Randburg. At the time she was closely involved with PSARU (People Search and Rescue Unit), an organisation that locates and returns missing children and adults, some of them victims of human trafficking. Hykie Berg was curious to hear Elanie's story, and could not believe what she heard as it unfolded. Elanie Kruger's story would make anyone's hair stand on end, and this nightmare of an experience would be seared into her memory, she soon realised. It is amazing that she survived it all. Later, she would get to know another side to her: her burning passion not only to help victims of human trafficking but also to be proactive and keep others from falling into the same trap. She is utterly committed to putting a stop to this evil. They became friends, and together gave numerous talks at various venues across the country to create an awareness of human trafficking. Elanie Kruger tells her story honestly and with an open mind, something few people will be prepared for. Today she isn't scared any more: she is fearless and unwavering in the task she has set herself. People might get the impression that she is tough and thick-skinned, yet she's just like any other girl, somebody with a heart filled with dreams. A girl is still a girl. Elanie's story, 'From playground to prostitute', is told in riveting fashion by Jaco Hough-Coetzee.
