On October 15, 2014, Operation Underground Railroad was featured on CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley. In this episode, they featured our recent rescue mission to Columbia, where 123 sex trafficking victims were rescued, including 55 underage children. Sex trafficking is a horrifying crime and must be combatted. Tim Ballard, OURrescue CEO and Founder, has led the OURrescue jump teams to save almost 250 sex trafficking victims in just 10 months! This is far more victims saved than would be possible from a government agency.

It's touching seeing the emotion that Tim feels for the trafficked victims. He and the jump team members instructed Colombian police forces on the setup of the sting operation. They setup hidden cameras and microphones around the house where the deal was going down so that they had enough evidence to convict the sex traffickers. Each of the perpetrators will receive 5-20 years in prison for the heinous crime of child sex trafficking.

This was an amazing rescue mission, followed by a lot of emotion. We thank you for your help and donations that made this mission possible. We plead for your continued help, support and prayers as we work to free these children and give them the life they deserve. Make a monthly donation and become an Abolitionist here:
