Naveen's Reunion

Naveen’s Reunion

The following videos are never before seen footage of our CEO Tim Ballard with Naveen before reuniting with her mother!
NINEVEH PLAINS, IRAQ – We are preparing Naveen to go home to her mother. They were separated for five years when ISIS kidnapped them and killed their father. Naveen was only 12 years old. They each believed the other was dead. Naveen suffered in ISIS slavery until we managed to get her out. Her mother had already moved to Australia believing she would never see her daughter again. But we found her!!! At last, we will bring Naveen home after five years of hellacious separation. Mother and daughter are ecstatic to see each other. I don’t know that I’ve ever been a part of something so special as this.
