The International Justice Mission (IJM) produced a groundbreaking short film, SuperMaarko, about how one boy survived cybersex trafficking. SuperMaarko has been nominated for a Webby Award, called “the Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times. Maarko’s story has been recognized in the Best Video (Public Service+Activism) category. With your help, there is a strong possibility that SuperMaarko can win! When I voted this afternoon SuperMaarko was in 1st Place with 36% of the votes.
SuperMaarko shares the story of Maarko, an ordinary boy in the Philippines who wants to be a superhero. But the evil that happened to him and his sister exists beyond the imagination. That’s what cybersex trafficking does.
Cybersex trafficking is on the rise as internet access increases everywhere. Now, pedophiles anywhere in the world can direct live sexual abuse of boys and girls hidden in private homes or internet cafes.
