In 2019, Freedom Now International (then Freedom Now Africa) conducted an anti-trafficking operation, which led to the rescue of 14 girls. However, they realized more had to be done. Hundreds of victims were still out there, needing help. Knowing they couldn’t do it alone, Freedom Now International reached out to the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation®.
The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation happily provided funds for a new project and investigation. Thus, Operation Black Mamba was initiated, which rescued 96 female trafficking victims. Many traffickers were arrested at the same time.
We also helped fund aftercare for every one of the rescued girls. Chris Gay, president of Freedom Now International, stated how invaluable the support from the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation was—to the success of their operation and the recovery of the survivors.
