Why WelCel Supports Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.)

The decision to align WelCel with Operation Underground Railroad is deeply rooted in Dr. Lisa and Trey’s life of service to others.

Trey, President of WelCel, is a retired Sergeant with the Fort Worth Police Department, and he spent the majority of his career in Tactical Operations, living the example of protecting the vulnerable from harm. The images he saw first-hand of children being exploited and harmed for perversion and greed still haunt him to this day, but they also motivate him to do everything possible to protect the innocent.

Trey and Dr. Lisa’s life experiences were vastly different. One witnessing the evils children were subjected to, the other seeing the miracle of life by delivering thousands of babies into the world. Those differences forged an unbreakable bond, centered around women and children, and the need to rescue them, protect them, and allow them to prosper.

“There’s a special joy for us in seeing the dramatic difference that we, our customers and our WelCel Champions can make in these young lives through our support for the courageous men and women who go into harm’s way to tackle the issue on the frontlines. It’s a powerful partnership when part of every purchase helps move Operation Underground Railroad one step closer to bringing another child home.” – Trey and Dr. Lisa

Operation Underground Railroad exists to free children from sex trafficking.

Today, 2 million children worldwide live as sex slaves and 73 million children under 12 years old are forced laborers. O.U.R.’s mission is to free the children and break the cycle using the following process:

  1. Locate child sex slaves and connect with local law enforcement.
  2. Rescue the children and take them to a safe haven for rehabilitation.
  3. Go after ringleaders and break up their organizations.

Through every WelCel purchase, together with your support, O.U.R. can greenlight the next operation.
