Emergency intervention at the source of child trafficking and abuse in Cambodia

Some children live in dramatic situations that do not allow them to develop normally, either psychologically or physically. The child is exploited, does not have enough to eat or is physically and psychologically abused. In these extreme cases, we welcome, if possible, these children in our shelter. To do so, we work hand in hand with the local authorities so that the process is carried out within a strictly legal framework.

Understanding our work against child abuse in Cambodia

The recent mechanization of agriculture has eliminated many jobs for people in Cambodia’s rural areas; with no more land or forests, men have left to work in the cities, especially in Thailand.

Women are left alone with their children and survive on the money their spouses bring them. Here, as polygamy is relatively common, the husband sometimes re-founds a home with a young Khmer woman he met in Thailand.
