Helping combat child abuse: Hotline Meldpunt Kinderporno joins the LeaseWeb Community Outreach Program

mkpLeaseWeb set up the Community Outreach program in 2010, aiming to bring together non-profit organizations who combat online abuse of all shapes and sizes. Whenever a new organization joins our Community Outreach program, we’ll introduce them to inform people about what they do – and why they do it.

The latest party joining our program is Meldpunt Kinderporno (MKP), the Dutch foundation against (online) child sexual abuse. LeaseWeb and MKP have already been working together as partners for a long time, so it is only natural that we now welcome them within our program.

MKP will verify / analyze the content and process the reports. If they find any form of child sexual abuse, they will report them to the respective ISPs.
