September 2014, Mumbai, India
As a result of the generous donations and multiplication efforts from Set Them Free Off Road 2014, we were able to raise over $23,000 (gross) and fund a complex rescue operation in Mumbai, India. This means we funded the provision of local investigative personnel, a safe home for each girl, and legal counsel for all six victims of sexual slavery and exploitation. The rescue operation alone cost approximately $4,500. Each victim received the opportunity to return to her family (if it was a safe situation) as well as physical, emotional, and psychological abuse counseling. The video below shares more about how the girls were rescued out of a small hole in a wall where they were forced to hide when rescue operatives invaded the brothel.
The remaining funds were reserved for donations to a local Colorado restoration home through Restore Innocence as well as for future fundraising opportunities, including The Justice Run 2015, Set Them Free Off Road 2015, and film previews of Nafarious: Merchant of Souls..
