Three Sisters Now Safe

Three minors have been rescued from the abuse of livestream online sexual exploitation in a sting operation led by the local police’s Women and Children’s Protection Center.

With the assistance of International Justice Mission (IJM), the girls underwent COVID testing following pandemic protocols and are now safe in our shelter receiving proper trauma-informed interventions.

The Department of Justice in the Philippines has received triple the number of reports of online sexual abuse since COVID lockdown was first implemented in March.

On-the-ground efforts of our local partners to increase awareness and bring intervention and justice, are important more than ever.
