@brookeence and five other NOBULL athletes each created unique pieces of art using their bodies and workout equipment as paintbrushes. The @nobullproject auctioned off all of the pieces, promising 100% of the proceeds to each athlete’s charity of choice. Brooke Ence chose O.U.R., and her painting sold for $20,000! We want to thank her for her support, which will help us liberate more children around the world. Link in profile for a video on how the painting was made. #ourrescue #EndHumanTrafficking
O.U.R. would like to congratulate the government of the Dominican Republic for their continued work with Operation Capotillo, which resulted in a 10-year prison sentence for the trafficker. The victim's trafficker in this case was their mother. In 2017, O.U.R. sponsored a cyber investigative training that resulted in the opening of this case. We are committed to working and training local governments to help bring freedom to more children. See link in profile for the original story on Op Capotillo. #ourrescue #EndHumanTrafficking
56 RESCUED! Our partners, Indian Rescue Mission (IRM), received intel about two karaoke bars that were holding over 20 girls each illegally. These bars kept the girls hidden during previous raids, so the police were never able to find any girls when they searched. IRM planned Operation Ruby with the local police to rescue the girls. The bar owners were arrested and over 20 girls were found in each bar. The girls were taken to a local government shelter to begin their healing process and life of freedom. #ourrescue #india
These three operations were recently conducted in India by our partners Indian Rescue Mission. We are grateful that the six survivors rescued are now FREE. Tag a friend who might not know about us! #OURrescue #EndHumanTrafficking
Healthcare professionals are in a unique position to recognize victims of child trafficking. Some signs may include someone else speaking for them, inappropriate dress for the current weather, suspicious tattoos or branding, and/or physical or sexual abuse. We are grateful for all the healthcare professionals who work so hard to serve our communities and children! Link in profile for full article. #ourrescue #jointhefight
