Day in and day out, people across the globe use the internet. Smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs, and other connected devices are so integrated into our lives that we hardly think about them. We don't like to think about their negative potential, or how the internet can be a window into the darkest places of the human soul.
Cybersex trafficking is a modern day form of slavery. Through the same kind of devices we use every day to communicate with loved ones and far away friends, adults inflict sexual abuse on boys and girls. They record these abuses and forced sex acts, then sell the show to the pedophiles and predators willing to pay.
We come to you seeing the need of these children in the Philippines. They need hope. They need justice. But their most immediate need is rescue from their abusers. International Justice Mission (IJM) is working with and through the justice system in the Philippines to find, rescue, and protect these young victims but there are thousands of leads, and it takes skilled people and resources to accomplish even one rescue.
Through the Rescue Me! project, FAIR is seeking to help IJM fund the rescue of children from their abusers in the Philippines. Each rescue requires approximately $10,000 which go towards the investigation of tips, staff time, transportation, immediate care, and assessment of rescued children.

The picture is bleak and the outlook is heavy — but there is hope. God promises rescue and justice for the oppressed. He works to make these a reality through ordinary people, doing seemingly small things that are magnified for huge Kingdom impact. With your help, and IJM's expertise, we can bring light to these dark places.
Will you prayerfully consider how you can partner with FAIR through this project? Together we can change the lives of children in desperate need of rescue.
