A campaign of the Australian Government in partnership with UNICEF, Save the Children Philippines, and The Asia Foundation, SaferKidsPH was created to address the rise in online sexual abuse and exploitation of children (OSAEC) in the Philippines.

In 2018 alone, there was an estimated minimum of 600,000 photos of naked, sexualized, and abused Filipino children as young as three months old were shared and sold online.

Working hand in hand with government partners, civil society, youth groups, and members of the private sector, SaferKidsPH aims to inform the public of the horrifying realities faced by these child victims.

Watch the TVC below:

Within 24 hours of being posted, the SaferKidsPH film drew over 1.5 million views, and thousands of shares, with netizens reacting in shock, anger, and sadness at the crimes being committed.

Many of the comments decried the inhuman treatment that produced OSAEC, vehemently denouncing those who would inflict such atrocities on children. Profoundly unsettling, the film is boldly effective in getting its point across.

According to UNICEF corporate alliances officer Georgina Belardo, the film is a crucial component of SaferKidsPH’s mission to spread awareness and create a conversation that would otherwise be left unheard.

Belardo said: “The increasing incidents of OSAEC in Filipino children is rising every year.

“People are not educated on how to protect their children and keep them safe online, so we needed to create this campaign to highlight the risks to children.”

As an introduction to the world of online sexual exploitation, the film is nothing less than devastating.

As the initial salvo of a six-year campaign, the film merely marks the beginning of an ongoing battle that SaferKidsPH is determined to win.
