The government of Cambodia does not provide counselling or social support to survivors of abuse and trafficking, and there is a huge need for community-based social services outside of the limited scope of aftercare centres, for survivors who are transitioning back into communities that are often rural and without access to any aftercare facilities or social services. Without this support survivors struggle with the effects of trauma, leaving them vulnerable and at risk of re-exploitation.
Justice and Client Care Project provides direct counseling and social support to survivors of exploitation living in their communities, and provides education, conflict mediation and support for their families to address social causes of abuse and trafficking and prevent future abuse. Our social work team personally visit survivors wherever they are living, providing psychological support, taking them to receive medical care and to court for legal proceedings to prosecute perpetrators.
Providing social services to survivors in their communities allows them to heal, regain their emotional wellbeing and build their resilience in a long-term sustainable environment and with the support of and alongside the education of their families. By including the education of families on protection of survivors, prevention and reporting of abuse, the larger social causes of exploitation are addressed, and the wider community is less at risk of being abused in the future.
