OUR VISION

Message from our Chairman

 
 

The Philippines is one of the predominant world-wide sources of on-line child pornography.  Parents, close relatives, and neighbors have been arrested after live-streaming the sexual abuse of children to pedophiles living in other countries. With no intervention, this abuse will have devastating life-long physical and emotional effects on victimized children.

Each month, authorities in the Philippines receive more than 2,600 referrals of suspected on-line sexual abuse.  From 2011 through February 2019, a total of 454 victims have been rescued. Each rescue is a significant event that starts the path of healing for a traumatized child.  As more rescues occur, the need for additional restoration facilities increases.

In 2018, we began transforming 10 acres of rural land into a refuge of hope, healing, and restoration for rescued children.  The ministry of Hope Mountain Center is focused on restoring the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of children that have experienced unbelievable betrayal and trauma.

Hope Mountain Center will be the first aftercare center in the Philippines that cares for both boys and girls rescued from on-line sexual exploitation.  Currently, brothers and sisters are separated, which increases the trauma they experience


Help us bring hope, healing and restoration to victimized children by becoming a Restoration Partner.  Every contribution will help a rescued child with their transformation from helpless victim to a thriving survivor.

In Christ’s Service,
