IJM Training Exercise Leads to Rescue of Underage Girls

PAMPANGA, THE PHILIPPINES — Four girls are now safe from being exploited in the local commercial sex trade, rescued by police only hours after an IJM training session.

Later that evening, they would work together to rescue more girls still waiting for freedom.
