Colombian Girl Rescued in Lima Peru
The Colombian child was captured by the notorious Venezuelan gang "Tren de Aragua" on the border of Venezuela, the most powerful Venezuelan gang spreading its tentacles into surrounding countries. Shortly after, a lead investigator for Colombia's DIPRO division of the Colombian National Police responsible for human trafficking investigations reached out to Children's International Rescue Foundation for assistance. The child had been moved to Peru, was given a false Venezuelan ID card and was being trafficked out of several clubs. Through investigative techniques and collaboration with the Peruvian National Police the child was located and a raid conducted taking several gang members into custody and rescuing the child along with another minor.
