3 children, victims of cybersex abuse, have been rescued and referred to the safety of our partners’ safe-house. This is a sanctuary for these precious children while they receive much needed care and love.
It is a recognised safe-house by local government departments and International Justice Mission. We know there will be many more children rescued from cybersex abuse as the Philippines slowly comes out of lockdown. The desperateness of people created by COVID-19 will likely see more horrendous situations that we are honored to be part of the solution.
16 Children Rescued from Online Sexual Abuse and Exploitation
16 children have been rescued from online sexual abuse and exploitation. Most of them experienced the abuse from their own families and relatives. These children are now safe in our shelter, receiving the counselling and support they need to start rebuilding their lives.
The prolonged pandemic in the Philippines has created issues that required necessary adjustments, especially for the women and children in The Blessed Project who are still in school and/or have ongoing court cases.
Early in 2019, the slum area where Kara and her family lived caught fire. Kara was homeless so she decided to live with her friends. One of her friends introduced her to a woman who promised to give her a job. Little did she know that the woman would exploit her.
