Rescued After Years of Abuse

Two rescued victims of Online Sexual Abuse and Exploitation of Children (OSAEC) have been recently transferred to the Blessed Project.

Mia and Marie (both names changed for security and privacy) were neglected by their parents at early ages of 13 and 9, and were left to take care of themselves. A close friend of their mother took advantage of the situation and coaxed them to make naked videos of themselves in exchange for money.

They had to endure an increase in abuse for years until they were finally rescued earlier this year. Now aged 18 and 15, we believe that these sisters still have a long and bright future ahead of them. And it starts with their healing journey now.

Preparation for Reintegration

The ultimate goal for survivors of human trafficking and online sexual abuse and exploitation of children (OSAEC) at The Blessed Project is for them to be reintegrated to the community, or if possible, to their families. The main challenges for this process to happen are the unpreparedness of relatives to accept and care for the trainees, unsuitable environment within the community, and the slow legal process for those with ongoing cases.
