Dear Cjaye,

Last week, IJM Cebu’s anti-trafficking team partnered with local authorities to conduct two rescue operations in three days.

Police partnering with IJM conduct the October 25 rescue operation in a Philippine brothel.

The operations freed a total of 16 victims of sex trafficking, secured the arrest of 5 suspected perpetrators and made headlines in the Philippines.

The operations — one in a brothel, another in a hotel — were possible because of IJM’s collaboration with local authorities in Cebu. Together, we stand on the frontlines to protect and rescue trafficking victims. The rescued survivors in these cases are now receiving aftercare services through local partners.

Help us rescue more girls and women from forced prostitution.

Give a Gift Today.
