31 people were rescued from human traffickers at the Nepal Border

Our heroic border agents stopped human traffickers from escaping the country with 31 victims!

The traffickers had targeted victims of all ages, most of whom were young adults, but we also managed to rescue 5 children. Two of the children, just 2 and 7 years old, were being trafficked out with their mothers.

Traffickers in Nepal lure their victims with promises of love, lucrative careers, or a better life. Once our agents shed light on their true purpose, victims and their families rarely prosecute the criminals because of the shame that comes with the admission.

But one of these brave families decided to press charges this time, and the trafficker was arrested! We hope more families will follow their lead in putting these traffickers behind bars. You can read more about Rescue at the border on our blog.

40 People Rescued from International Traffickers

Traffickers were attempting to lure their victims across the Nepal border.

Border agents intercepted 21 women and 19 children as traffickers attempted to lure them across the border and into a life of exploitation. The children were as young as 12 years old and included two boys.

Thankfully, these survivors will never know what the traffickers had in store for them. Once victims disappear across the border, it becomes extremely difficult to find them again. The few that do return tell harrowing stories of abuse and exploitation.
