EVERY 30 SECONDS a child is sold for sex, labor or organ harvesting. READ THAT AGAIN.
This is just one of many horrifying and heartbreaking truths that I have come to realize since I was first introduced to the powerful and heroic work of @Tim Ballard and @Operation Underground Railroad earlier this year. Their mission: To rescue children from sex trafficking and put an end to these atrocities.
Human trafficking is a mind-boggling $150 BILLION industry! Since the start of the pandemic, child crisis trafficking cases have increased by over 40%!
It’s a shocking and ungraspable fact. It’s also information that is not often shared or talked about and it’s a reality we are uncomfortable to acknowledge. For most, the initial reaction to this may be — how can this be true? Once the shock settles and information sinks in, the next question is: How can we help? How can we stop this? The power behind emotions like this is best served in a POSITIVE way — by TAKING ACTION.
In this video I have the privilege of talking with Tim Ballard, Founder and CEO of Operation Underground Railroad and also CEO of The Nazarene Fund. He’s the best-selling author of 6 books, including “Slave Stealers: True Accounts of Slave Rescues – Then and Now”. Recently, the indescribably heroic, profound and life-saving work of Tim and O.U.R journey has been depicted in a must-watch film, Sound of Freedom.
There are few people in this world who will pack up their life, give up everything and set out to truly MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Tim is one of these champions for good and the work he, his family and his organizations have done is extraordinary.
The time to stop these atrocities is NOW. Find out how YOU can help support and save the lives of thousands of children who desperately need our help, NOW MORE THAN EVER.
