Weak law enforcement, corruption, grinding poverty and the fractured social institutions left by the Cambodian Genocide have made Cambodia one of the worst places in the world for child sex trafficking.
For less money than a cup of coffee, tourists can access a dark world. On main streets, little girls are scantily dressed and paraded behind a glass wall with numbers strung around their necks and reduced to a mere commodity to satisfy the lusts of foreign and national men.
A UNICEF survey concluded that 35% of Cambodia’s 15,000 prostitutes are children under the age of 16.
As one of Asia’s poorest countries – nearly half the population lives on less than $2 per day – many Cambodian’s struggle with a lack of adequate education and limited opportunities for employment.
We must hear the cries of a nation and respond.
In partnership with Extreme Love, we assist with the prevention, rescue, and aftercare of Cambodian children who are victims of trafficking.We believe that God desires to bring His justice to the earth.
