Three traffickers who ran a large bar that was once viewed as untouchable were convicted yesterday in the Philippines.
In a heartbreaking rescue operation that led IJM to the youngest victim we have ever encountered, four girls and one boy were rescued from cybersex trafficking yesterday in the Philippines.
The heartbreaking picture of young girls being sold openly is no longer today's Cambodia.

MUMBAI, INDIA – Four girls as young as 10 were rescued last week from a moving train headed hundreds of miles away from their home to Mumbai. Police and IJM staff flooded busy train platforms to rescue the girls. They worked together in close collaboration with other NGOs and government operations to pull off the rescue operation. A train passenger who happened to be an NGO employee had called in a tip to the government social service agency—several girls were seen traveling with a couple that seemed overly watchful and suspicious.
