In 2022 alone, we removed over 255,000 webpages containing abhorrent images or videos of children being sexually abused. Each webpage might have contained a hundred or a thousand pictures. That’s equivalent to millions of criminal images removed from the open web.
We never forget that in each one of these images is a real child. We can’t fully understand their suffering, the horror that these youngsters endure. But we do know that the criminals who abuse them are ruthless. They share images of babies, toddlers, teenagers being raped and tortured online. Their depravity knows no bounds.
We also know that survivors of childhood abuse are tormented knowing that perpetrators can circulate a record of their suffering online. Our job is to give survivors some peace of mind. Our job is to work to remove criminal pictures from the web.
What can you do?
Every penny raised for us makes a difference. When you give to IWF it helps us further train our brilliant analysts. We support them in the incredibly difficult job they do.
Each working day our analysts hunt down, stop and remove disturbing imagery of children being sexually abused. Investing in these extraordinary people and their wellbeing, means that even more criminal images can be assessed and taken down; more survivors will be protected from the torment of knowing a record of their suffering is being shared online; and more perpetrators will have their efforts to circulate the suffering blocked.
We make a difference. So can you. It’s amazing what your donation can do.
