Jane*

In 2018, DeliverFund was able to track down victims of a notorious human trafficker.

DeliverFund was asked by a law enforcement agency to advise them in real time as they worked to locate a human trafficker, rescue his victims, and bring him to justice.

Thanks to DeliverFund’s state-of-the-art technologies and specially trained intelligence analysts, we were able to help law enforcement rescue a victim who was facing a horrifying situation. Jane held the key to finding the current location of the trafficker, but she was having a hard time trusting the officers. Our team continued to assist the officers as they gently pried the information from this distraught young woman.

All traffickers are barbaric, but this particular trafficker was beyond that. 

The National Human Trafficking Hotline received reports of 8,686 unique cases of potential trafficking in 2017, referencing 21,644 POTENTIAL VICTIMS.

He had taken Jane’s four-month-old baby and used the threat of abandoning the child in the street to control her. 

Under this threat, this young woman was forced to sell her body and give the money to her trafficker. With the help of the DeliverFund team, the officers were able to earn the young victim’s trust and get the information they needed to locate and arrest the trafficker and reunite Jane with her baby.

Sarah*

Sarah was an ordinary American girl.

One summer night, Sarah left her job at a local fast-food restaurant with someone she thought was a friend, a woman her boyfriend had introduced her to a few weeks before. Sarah’s boyfriend seemed to have money, but no job. No matter. He treated her better than any other boyfriend she’d had before. She fell for him quickly.

What Sarah didn’t know was that her boyfriend worked for a human trafficker, spotting girls he could manipulate quickly and bring to the trafficker. He had already sold Sarah to him. When Sarah got in the car with the new friend, she didn’t realize that she was crossing the threshold into slavery … participating in her own abduction. Sarah was taken to the trafficker’s house, where she was repeatedly raped and beaten in a process that human traffickers call “seasoning”. Sarah was then force-fed narcotics in quantities that ensured a fast addiction. She was kept in a dog crate when she was not being sold for sex over the Internet. Sarah was living one of the most brutal lives imaginable, and law enforcement had no idea she was missing or that her trafficker even existed.

After a little more than a month, Sarah managed to escape, and ran to the police. She told them her story and they called DeliverFund for help. Within hours, we located her trafficker, along with the other women he was holding. Days later, the local SWAT team raided his house, freeing all the girls he had enslaved and bringing the trafficker to justice.
