18 rescued at the border
Border agents intercepted and rescued 18 people from human trafficking, including 14 and 15-year-old boys.
Fourteen-year-old Chetan and his friend Barun met a man in their village two months ago. After learning that their school was closed because of lockdowns, the man offered them both well-paying jobs, saying they were just over the border in a neighboring country.
The boys said they’d ask their families but the man convinced them not to tell anyone. He attempted to take them across the border and realized the main route was well guarded so the man sent them via rickshaw to a more remote station.
Thankfully, in October of last year Destiny Rescue established a constant presence in this more remote border location. Our agents stopped the vehicle for routine interviewing and noticed that the boys looked scared. After a few questions, they told agents the whole story. Both have been reunited with their families and educated on the risks and realities of human trafficking.

Simultaneous raids rescue 12 in the Philippines
Against all odds, two raids successfully rescued 12 people during lockdowns and a monsoon in August.
Teams battled flooded roads, high winds, and understaffing in our latest operation with the Philippines NBI. Shifting lockdown restrictions also impacted the operation details multiple times in the hours leading up to the raid.
At the last minute, a final location was secured and simultaneous sting operations took place.
In total, 12 individuals were rescued and four pimps were arrested for human trafficking. Among those rescued were five children, girls ages 13-16.
