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.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Help us continue the fight against human trafficking and OSAEC in the Philippines.

 

Or help support the girls at the Blessed Project through the rehabilitation process, and bring restoration while they rebuild their lives.
