Four girls rescued in Cambodia
Four girls have accepted our offer of freedom and have joined our community care program in Cambodia.
Two of the girls, ages 17 and 18, are sisters. All of the survivors will receive a welcome pack containing food staples and will begin their time with us by attending trauma rehabilitation sessions.
Caseworkers will work with survivors and their families to establish a freedom plan customized to each girl’s specific needs, allowing them to either return to school or begin training for safe employment options.
