As a child, I was sexually exploited online: now I want governments and tech companies to take action
Ruby (not her real name) is a survivor of online child sexual exploitation in the Philippines. Now an adult, she is committed to raising awareness about the abuse she suffered and the actions government and tech industries must take to truly eradicate this crime.
Listen as Ruby bravely shares her story in a six-part podcast that takes you behind the scenes on her journey to freedom.
Right Now, 6 Million Children in the Philippines Need Protection from Sexual Exploitation, Abuse and Trafficking
Online sexual exploitation of children is on the rise. Children are sexually abused by traffickers who live-stream the abuse to customers from anywhere in the world willing to pay and direct the sexual abuse from their own homes.
Every one of these children was made in God’s image and has a name worth fighting for. Ruby. Aaron. Cassie. Elsa. These are all our children. And their future depends on us. Join us in the fight for their lives.
