Solenn Heussaff, Dimples Romana, fellow celeb moms seek end to child sex exploitation for Mother’s Day
Celebrity moms have a request this Mother’s Day: don’t just give them flowers. Instead, send help to Filipino children who are victims of sexual exploitation.
Actresses Solenn Heussaff, Toni Gonzaga, Dimples Romana, Dawn Zulueta and Denise Laurel were among the parents to raise awareness about online sexual exploitation of children (OSEC) in a video released today, May 4.
“This is one of my most important posts to date. We must protect our children,” Romana said as she shared the video on Instagram today.
The campaign is organized by International Justice Mission (IJM), a global anti-slavery organization fighting cybersex trafficking.
The moms talked about how “determined” they are to protect their children, and urged for donations to rescue children this Mother’s Day, May 10.
Besides the mothers’ appeals, harrowing realities were highlighted too, such as kids being live-streamed for P450 to foreigners, and OSEC on the rise with people in isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.
Rica Peralejo, TV host Mariel Rodriguez, stylist Liz Uy and entrepreneur Divine Lee were also part of the campaign composed of 22 moms.
