Each and every day, our team work tirelessly to remove images and videos showing the sexual abuse of children from the global internet.
These children might be babies; they might be teenagers. They may have been raped; they may have been groomed for months; their abuse may even have been 'ordered' online. The depravity of the criminals who make and view these tragic images is beyond belief.
Each child is a real victim. They may be different ages, come from different countries, have different skin colours, or languages, but their suffering is the same.
Every time the record of abuse is shared online, every time someone views the trauma, these children are abused again. The abuse is perpetual. To a child or young person, it must feel never-ending.
That’s why we do what we do. We stop, remove and prevent child sexual abuse online.
We're grateful for every donation we receive. As an individual or a trust, making a major donation can have a lasting impact on our work to rid the internet of child sexual abuse.find out more
As part of our job we help children like Zara, by removing the online record of their abuse. In 2020 alone, we destroyed over 153,000 webpages each containing hundreds, even thousands of abusive images of children.
Nearly one third of the images were of children under ten. Sadly, the younger the child, the more severe the abuse appeared to be.
