Where We Work

Our Work in Cambodia

Cambodia is still struggling to rebuild from its horrible past, which has left many Cambodians in extremely poverty. Desperate to find work to help their families survive, countless numbers of children are tricked and forced into the sex-trade.

The history of Cambodia is stained with trauma, turmoil and warfare. In more recent times, civil war in the 1970s led to the deaths of over two million nationals, during the reign of the notorious Khmer Rouge and leader Pol Pot. This evil communist dictator took control of the country from 1975 to 1979 and forced it back into a subsistence lifestyle.  Multitudes died from disease, starvation and brutal execution – many of them in what are known as The Killing Fields and SR-21.

Today, Cambodia is still struggling to rebuild from the horrors of its past, and it’s still heavily dependent on foreign aid. Corruption is rampant and affects almost every level of government and modern society, adding to the difficult rebuilding process.
