We all love our children and hope that they never are hurt or abused. Could you imagine if your child was stolen from you and sold into sex slavery? For many of us this is beyond the realms of our imagination, but for many it is reality. Innocent children are stolen and kept in terrible conditions and then used a tourism prostitutes for those who want “untouched virgins” of either sex or sex with “young” children and teenagers.
One organisation, Operation Underground Railroad is helping to change this by rescuing children from sex slavery. A movie has recently been made about their efforts.
As a part of its’ charitable efforts doTERRA has decided to partner with Operation Underground Railroad. The partnership is in the following ways:
- Providing cash donations through the Healing Hands Foundation
- Providing “Hope” essential oil to women and children at risk. DoTERRA is donating “Hope” oil to Operation Underground Railroad, who then distributes it to children and young adults around the world with O.U.R.’s logo and the human trafficking hotline number printed on the inside of the label. It can only be found by pulling the label back.
O.U.R. Director of Corporate Partnerships, Doug Osmond, explains how the “Hope” oil uniquely aids trafficking victims. “The traffickers won’t take it away because it smells good, but it gives the victims a tool to get out,” Osmond says. “It’s amazing what a difference a simple ‘tool’ such as this can make!”
The following video show you the presentation at the doTERRA 2016 convention about the partnership. It is both inspiring and moving.
Watch the presentation from convention. It will make you feel sick, but also want to help make a change to the lives of these desperate people.
doTERRA has showed support to O.U.R. in unique and essential ways. Osmond says that the Healing Hands Foundation has raised $500,000 for O.U.R., connected with three million wellness advocates to spread awareness, and recently had employees participate in a “Day of Giving” to assemble a 1,000 kits for aftercare programs around the globe. doTERRA’s founding executive and CEO, David Sterling, even joined jump team members on an undercover domestic operation, observing from a safe distance.
doTERRA is now making a special offer to O.U.R.’s supporters.
From now until November 30th, if you make a donation to the doTerra Healing Hands Foundation on their website and choose O.U.R., they will match the donation!
This partnership allows O.U.R. to extend its reach further into the fight against child sex trafficking. “If they continue to contribute and grow with us, we will be able to fund more aftercare programs, rescue missions and get more people aware of the child trafficking issue,” Osmond says. “We are very grateful this partnership has become a reality.”
