"I want those trapped to know there are people like you who won’t give up until they are found." - Ruby

Today, will you help protect children like Ruby* from online sexual exploitation?

This horrific crime is growing around the world and police are warning that it is growing faster than our collective ability to stop it.

Sex offenders - including in the UK - are paying traffickers in places like the Philippines to abuse child over the internet such as livestreaming.

By becoming a Freedom Partner today, you can help IJM teams urgently working to bring children to safety and to stop this abuse. We're asking for your help.

Ruby was just 15 years old when she became a victim of online sexual exploitation. No child should ever have suffer like Ruby.

After the death of her parents, Ruby was tricked by traffickers who offered her a job. She thought her life would get better - but the reality was very different.

Ruby was trapped and locked up in a house with a guard outside. She was sexually abused live over the internet for sex offenders to watch online.

"Everything told to me by my trafficker was a total lie... It felt like a bomb exploding in my head after seeing half naked girls coming out from one of the rooms.

I did disgusting shows every day. It was like being trapped in a dark room without any rays of light".

In her desperation, she prayed, "God, if you're real, get me out of here!" The very next day, IJM and local police brought Ruby and five other girls to safety.

Today, Ruby is safe and is a courageous advocate for every child to be free.

"I believe that you cannot change the world with just your opinion but your example, and I want to be that living example." - Ruby

Why I'm a Freedom Partner

I got to know about IJM's work a few years ago and have been an admirer ever since. My admiration for IJM’s work morphed into an active urge to partner with them – becoming a Freedom Partner seemed to me the best way to do that, and so I signed up in April 2021. I’m inspired by how IJM tackles exploitation and implements sustainable solutions. I believe it’s my duty to play my part in creating a safer and happier world for our children.
