We recently received an order from the Philippines’ Department of Justice to bring two of the young women survivors from the Blessed House to their Manila office for preliminary investigation of their OSAEC (Online Sexual Abuse and Exploitation of Children) case. Despite heavy rains and flood in the area, our staff accompanied the two young women to the investigation, represented by a government-provided lawyer.
Part of the women’s journey to restoration is the pursuit of justice against their perpetrators. During these times, the physical and emotional support they need is always there.
Help support the girls at the Blessed House through the rehabilitation process, and bring restoration while they rebuild their lives. Click on the links below to know more.
As young as 9 years old, Elaine (name changed for privacy) was pimped by her mom to customers along the street, and at 10 years old, Elaine started working in bars. She was finally rescued a year after and is now safe in shelter.
In June 2020, International Justice Mission (IJM) and the Philippine National Police rescued a deaf and mute 27-year-old online sexual exploitation victim, together with her children. She was admitted to the Blessed House for immediate care and is now part of Blessed Project’s Sewing Livelihood Program as part of her restoration.
