Consoling Through Counseling Update

Consoling Through Counseling provides trauma therapy, social assistance, and small business grants to survivors of human trafficking, sexual abuse and domestic violence residing in a women's shelter in rural Cambodia. We are happy to report: 

  • There have been ten new survivors and two relatives referred to stay in the CWCC’s Banteay Meanchey safe shelter. Adding to the existing six, there are now a total of 15 survivors under our care.
  • The counselor spent over 50 hours providing individual counseling sessions to those staying in the shelter. Among the 14 survivors to receive this counseling, six were victims of human trafficking and exploitation, five were victims of sexual abuse and three were victims of domestic violence.
  • Small group counselling was also provided to survivors (and some relatives) at the shelter. 
  • One survivor of sexual abuse was reintegrated to her home in Malai district, Banteay Meanchey province. She also received a life start-up support from the project to buy food commodities.
  • Two follow-up visits were made with four reintegrated survivors, two of which are now living in houses of their own, while one survivor works as the hostess in a restaurant in Siem Reap, and another lives with her Aunt and works in a bakery shop in Phnom Penh. The reintegration officer found that all of them have lived happily with their families and relatives in their community and will look to close these cases in the next quarter.

We are so encouraged to see so many survivors making huge steps to improve their lives, both physical and psychological. Thank you for supporting Consoling Through Counseling.
