Children In Slavery

The sex trade in the Philippines is tantamount to modern day slavery and the worst sort of abuse.

  • UNICEF estimates as many as 100,000 children in the Philippines are involved in prostitution rings, including online pornography, which is rapidly growing. 
  • “Sex tourism” is a growing illicit industry, and there is a high incidence of child prostitution in tourist areas.
  • Trafficked victims are often promised jobs that will help their families, and impoverished children, girls especially, desperate to have adequate amounts of food and other necessities, fall prey to traffickers.

The Philippines Child Rescue Home is a place of healing and hope for rescued girls who have been trafficked and abused in horrific ways.

To Dream Again: Child Champions at the PCRH

23 Years of Care

The Philippines Child Rescue Home started as a safe home for street kids. Quickly, the home’s founders realized that many of the children they were serving had run away from home to get away from abuse.

The Philippines Child Rescue Home is not far from the epicenter of sex trafficking in Cebu, and its nurses, social workers, and other advocates have been helping heal hurting kids for 23 years. Child Champions at the home partner with Philippine law enforcement and the International Justice Mission to rescue girls and help them recover.

Rescued From the City

When girls are first rescued from the streets, they go to a safe house in the city. They stay there a week or longer, depending on their needs. During this time, girls receive medical care and spend time with a psychologist. The care providers help the girls with police reports and prepare them for the move out of the city to the Rescue Home.

Rehabilitation at the Ranch

The Rescue Home is a ranch-style residence where girls live and go to school. Girls education levels are evaluated, and then an educational plan is designed to meet their specific needs, always rooted in Christ. 

As girls acclimatize to their new environment, they find new rhythms for life. Daily routines, including schooling, chores, and group leisure activities, are vital for reestablishing a sense of stability.

Long Term Care

Because the girls we care for at the Philippines Child Rescue Home have been so badly abused, they require long term care. Most girls stay at the home until they are 18 years of age.
