Seven girls rescued in Cambodia


Covert agents find and rescue seven girls, ages 15 to 19, from the sex industry in Cambodia. Each survivor has enrolled in community care.

Our team searches for children in beer gardens and karaoke television bars at night in Cambodia. Once identified, our agents build their trust before putting her in contact with our caseworkers.

At the meetings, our team speaks gently and encourages the children. We help girls and their families see the danger of the sex industry and how they can achieve freedom from it.

Once rescued, survivors return to a safe living situation within their communities where they follow their Freedom Plans. We also help them return to school, learn new skills or find employment.

Caseworkers visit survivors often after rescue to help navigate their next steps.
