At a young age, Abigail (name changed for privacy) has been a victim of abuse and neglect. In their community, men would contact her and sexually exploit her in exchange for money. This has become the family’s main way so they can buy food.
Abigail’s case was referred to us in Blessed Project and we assisted in her rescue. Abigail, now 17, and her two-year-old daughter were welcomed today at the Blessed House, where they will be receiving the necessary support as she heals and learns skills so she can be employed and support her child.
Help support the girls at the Blessed Project through the rehabilitation process, and bring restoration while they rebuild their lives. Check out the links below, or sign up for our fundraising event this June – Stop Trafficking 5K.
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.
