There are approximately 20 to 30 million slaves in the world today. According to the U.S. State Department, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year, of which 80% are female and half are children.
The largest demand for child sex slaves comes from the United States.
Every 30 seconds, a child is sold into slavery.
Does this information make you uncomfortable, uneasy or angry?
It should. But the real question is: Will you do something about it?
Operation Underground Railroad is a non-profit founded by Tim Ballard which assists governments around the world in the rescue of human trafficking and sex trafficking victims, with a special focus on children. In the past five years of existence, O.U.R. has rescued 2,078 victims and assisted in the arrests of more than 1,173 traffickers around the world.
Being a non-profit, the organization relies on donations and grants to function.
