At Child Rescue Coalition, we rescue children from sexual abuse by building technology for law enforcement, free of charge, to track, arrest and prosecute child predators. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have noticed a surge in predators distributing horrific Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) online. As both children and offenders have been forced to stay home and spend more time on the internet, the threat of online child sexual abuse has increased.
To date, the donor-funded Child Rescue Coalition technology has aided global law enforcement arrest more than 12,400 dangerous predators and save more than 2,800 kids, which on average is almost 4 predators every single day and 1 child every day and a half!
But we need to do more to continue our fight to protect children. This summer, it’s time to take action!
