Suamhirs Piraino-Guzman | 2022 National Crime Victims' Service Awards

Suamhirs Piraino-Guzman was abducted from Honduras as a child in 2004 and brought to the United States, where he was trafficked. He was abused and exploited in California until a police raid discovered him. Driven by his desire to ensure that children, immigrants, and human trafficking survivors receive better support, Mr. Piraino-Guzman has shared his experiences and built a career of service and inspiration.

Suamhirs Piraino-Guzman received the Special Courage Award. Visit the OVC Gallery for more information about her work to support victims of crime.
