Operation Underground Railroad
A harsh reality is that people everywhere from Lima, Peru to Arizona, U.S.A. are being taken against their will and sold into slavery. As of today, more than 30 million people are victims of sex trafficking; two million of them are children. Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) rescues victims and apprehends offenders.
By working with local governments and other NGOs, they also provide victims with a safe place to stay as well as other essential services such as counseling, job training, and therapeutic activities.
So far, OUR has assisted in the rescue of 3,100 victims and the capture of over 1,700 traffickers.
