Some things don’t change.  Human trafficking continues despite COVID-19 raging.

Our Underground Railway shares here the “effects” of Coronavirus on their work – and asks for your help.

OUR work on despite COVID-19
The O.U.R. Ops Team continues to work in the COVID-19 environment, as warriors in a global pitched battle against child slavery.
 
What has been the effect of COVID-19 on their work? Are they in lockdown?
 
No. The only “difference” that Coronavirus has made to their work is that last week the madam of a brothel, believing the O.U.R. Operators to be paying customers, provided them with face masks and hand sanitizer before giving them access to unprotected children. 

If you are unfamiliar with the work OUR do, their mission is to rescue children from slavery.  The most horrific form of child slavery is sex slavery, but chattel slavery of children is very widespread, and the children are abused in many other ways also.

 
OUR report that last week in Southeast Asia, their Operators went undercover to a brothel suspected of selling children for sex.  They suspected that the sex trafficking continued despite the dangers of COVID-19 infection.
 
Their suspicions were verified when they discovered that the house madam was eager to provide small children to O.U.R. Operators.
 
Particularly sickening is that the madam, believing  the O.U.R. Operators to be paying customers, provided them with face masks and hand sanitizer before giving them access to the unprotected children.
 
At all times, long before Coronavirus began to be a threat, those poor children were  left vulnerable to atrocities that are arguably far more devastating than any virus could inflict.
 
O.U.R. Operators working alongside law enforcement were able to successfully free the children and they are now receiving proper care.
 
Human trafficking has not stopped during this time of pandemic. The O.U.R. team continues working around the clock all over the globe to protect the most innocent.
