IWF International Reporting Portals – We help countries without anywhere to report images and videos of child sexual abuse. We provide a reporting button which feeds directly to our expert analysts in the UK, who assess the reports and remove the content. They are known as our International Reporting Portals.
The IWF Portal enables you to report images and videos of child sexual abuse when spotted on the internet.
You can anonymously and confidentially report:
- Child sexual abuse content
- Non-photographic child sexual abuse images

According to official data from the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, in 2014 there were 1,392 incidents of sexual and gender-based violence nationwide, with the majority taking place in Montserrado county, where the most services and reporting structures exist. Of these, 626 were cases of rape, with 605 of the victims under 18. Nine “one-stop centres” recorded 1,162 cases, of which 965 were rapes, 27 were gang rapes and 85 were sexual assaults.

Results from a survey conducted in Liberia in May 2008 found that a third of the 1,666 respondents reported serving time with fighting forces and a third of those former combatants were also female. Compared with male combatants, female combatants were more likely to be forced to serve as sexual servants than male combatants. Source: International Rescue Committee (2004).
