Ruby was just 16 when that message changed her life forever.
Finding Ruby is a six part immersive podcast experience that journeys with Ruby, through the hell of an online sex trafficking den and out again to the light of justice, healing and restoration.
Piece by piece, the layers of protection around Ruby are pulled away. It is into this space that the message arrives on Facebook.
Ruby is caught in the online sex trafficking den. The days are gruelling but she is determined to escape.
Who exactly is on the other side of the webcam? We come face to face with the kind of men exploiting Ruby.
Light breaks into the darkness.
A painstaking investigation leads to the rescue of Ruby and the other girls.
The fight for justice now begins. Ruby’s perpetrators belong behind bars, but their lawyer will do anything to stop that from happening.
Bitterness and anger well up in Ruby as she tries to move on with her life. Can she overcome this and truly heal?
Ruby’s story is intimately woven with many of the team from IJM Philippines. These are men and women, lawyers, advocates, social workers and investigators that have given themselves to this fight. The online sexual exploitation of children is a global crime that requires a global response. IJM’s teams are working around the world to protect the world’s most vulnerable, and they are only able to do this because people like you support them financially.
Each day we bring our all to help not-for-profit, socially-conscious corporate, and faith-based organisations tell their story.
We do this through branding, social media, web design and video production, (all alongside a thoughtful, defined marketing strategy).
