WHO WE ARE
Internet Hotline Cambodia was officially launched in 2016 with support from INHOPE Foundation. Run by APLE, it’s one of the globally connected hotlines. IHC provides a secure venue for the public to report Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) anonymously and allows APLE to coordinate notice/takedown actions.
IHC provides a crucial link in the protective chain of interventions against child sexual abuse and exploitation, ensuring that the problem is investigated and if found to be illegal, for the information to be sent to law enforcement.
Child Sexual Abuse Material is a term that can be used as an alternative to Child Pornography to refer to any material depicting acts of sexual abuse and/or focusing on the genitalia of the child.
Reporting of CSAM enables the possibility of images to be removed and/or victims to be identified for support. It will also help with the prosecution of perpetrators, and thereby the possible prevention of new or repeat abuse.
Reporting is quick, easy and confidential. You can report anonymously. If you wish to find out what happened to your report, we’ll need your contact info. You can also keep your report reference number to trace the status in IHC website.
