Of the 14, six cases occurred in January, the remaining eight in February.

To ensure the number of victims doesn’t increase, the PANI has launched a 911 campaign to report any abuse.

The PANI campaign, in conjunction with the National Commission against Commercial Sexual Exploitation (Comisión Nacional contra la Explotación Sexual Comercial  CONAES) and Casa Presidencial, is called “Romper Las Cadenas” (Break The Chains).

The PANI reports that last year there were 194 cases sexual exploitation of minors. An average of 16 cases a month.
