Online Sexual Abuse and Exploitation of Children (OSAEC) is a phenomenon that emerged in recent years which involves the production, possession, and distribution of child sexual abuse materials and live streaming of sexual abuse or exploitation. The Covid-19 Pandemic further cemented The Philippines as the global epicenter of OSAEC. Help provide child survivors with a brighter and more hopeful future.

Who We Are
World Hope International is a faith-based relief and development organization working with vulnerable and exploited communities to alleviate poverty, suffering, and injustice.
At World Hope International (WHI) we provide mercy and compassion for the disempowered, healing for the abused, and recovery for survivors of exploitation. We operate on the guiding principle that people who are harmed in relationship are also healed in relationship. To respond to the needs of survivors, we work in diverse places around the world to design prevention, protection, aftercare, and advocacy programs to create a path to restoration. Critical to this is working at all levels of a society—from raising awareness at the household level, to education of law enforcement and social workers, to advocacy at the highest levels of government.
OSAEC: A Modern Face of Human Trafficking
Sexual exploitation of children is one of the most heinous crimes in the world today as it targets the most vulnerable members of society – the children. The Internet has provided an easier and wider platform for it, and COVID-19 has made it worse. What can be done about it?
