Operation Underground Railroad began saving children from their abductors since December 2013. With the creation of their Underground Jump Team, which is comprised of former members of the Central Intelligence Agency, retired Navy SEALs, and Special Operations Specialists, they have successfully planned and implemented the rescue of trafficking victims and children who have been taken against their will to be sold for slavery and/or sex trafficking. They always work in conjunction with local law enforcement to ensure that once their mission is completed, justice will be served for the children that have been victimized. We are publicizing their work not only to shed light on this barbaric occurrence but to ask everyone to please help in their cause in any way they can. This evil will not end until good decent people, such as those reading this, make their voices heard, shouting … “WE WILL NO LONGER TURN A BLIND EYE TO THE SUFFERING OF OUR CHILDREN.”
Their work does not end when the victims are rescued. The physical and emotional abuse they have experienced is not easily overcome and requires professional help. Operation Underground Railroad ensures that all victims receive aftercare through partnerships that they have fostered with various facilities throughout the world. These facilities specialize in the rehabilitation required for victims who have experienced the horrors of this ordeal. They are introduced back into society in a healthy way that works for them. In addition, they work to educate people around the world. Unfortunately, there is a misconception regarding where these crimes take place, educating people is another way they help combat the abuse of children. They work with various organizations who have dedicated themselves to educating people from everywhere.
Operation Underground Railroad needs our help. If you are thinking to yourself I just don’t have the money to donate, that’s fine, there are many ways that you can show your support. However, if you are interested in showing your support and can make a donation please visit Operation Underground Railroad site. You can also support them by volunteering your time. You can volunteer to work at their office or from your home, and if you are interested, possibly travel to the areas you are needed. Another great way to help is to host or simply attend an event for the benefit of the children. If your business participates in charities, they also have a Corporate Gift Matching Option. When one of their employees donates then their employer will match that donation.
The donations they receive go towards helping local law enforcement agencies that are in constant struggle with budget issues. The donations enable those agencies to put finances into the fight; that is the fight against child pornography, child exploitation, or human trafficking. Law enforcement officers are then empowered to act on these crimes by being “proactive” instead of reactive.
In closing, we would like to sincerely thank Operation Underground Railroad and every member of their team. Your dedication and bravery serve as an inspiration to us all.
