With its beautiful beaches and coral reefs, the Philippines is a top tourist destination...with a dark side: the trafficking of children. It is estimated that over 100,000 children are trapped in this exploitative and openly commercial trade in the Philippines.
The Philippines Child Rescue (PCR) involves a unique partnership of Christian organizations, working with the International Justice Mission (IJM) to rescue children from destructive situations. While IJM rescues children from commercial sex trade and brings the perpetrators to justice, the PCR provides a safe place for abused and trafficked children to heal under the guidance of qualified, caring, Christian adults. With medical care, counseling, and support, these children are transformed. They can finish their education, learn vocational skills, and reenter society with a new sense of hope and confidence.
