Ambre Blends is proud to stand up against child trafficking by donating 1% of every online purchase to Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.).
O.U.R. was founded in December 2013 to rescue children from slavery. They have gathered the world’s experts in extraction operations and in anti-child trafficking efforts to bring an end to child slavery. Since O.U.R. was founded, they have rescued 4,100 victims and assisted in the arrests of more than 2,300 traffickers around the world.
The O.U.R. Underground Jump Team consists of former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts in conjunction with law enforcement throughout the world. Once victims are rescued, recovery and rehabilitation for the survivors beings. They provide shelter, food, and therapy to the victims while following their process to ensure that predators are arrested, tried, and convicted.
Today, two million children worldwide live as sex slaves, and 73 million children under 12 years old are forced laborers. O.U.R. works to free the children and then break the cycle.
What is Human Trafficking?
As defined by the Department of Homeland Security, human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Millions of adults and children here and around the world are trafficked for labor and sex. Traffickers might use violence, manipulation, or false promises of well-paying jobs or romantic relationships to lure victims into trafficking situations.
Human trafficking looks different in every city, state, and country. You can read more about human trafficking is in O.U.R.’s blog.
