Challenge

Cambodia is a major destination for sex tourists, with perpetrators being from both Western and Asian countries. With a lack of trained social workers and medical professionals to respond to the complex needs of children when they are rescued from sexually exploitative situations, children are not getting the critical care they need. Many families and communities are also unaware of the impact that this type of abuse has on their children, and are unable to provide the necessary support.

Solution

Providing immediate and quality psychosocial services and medical care to children following their rescue from situations of sexual exploitation ensures their needs are properly assessed and they receive the urgent care they so richly deserve.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide immediate psychosocial services to 300 Cambodia children who have been rescued from sexual exploitation. Providing this support in the critical stages of trauma recovery, engaging families and caregivers to support recovery while addressing protective factors and continuously monitoring victims throughout their recovery will ensure the children are able to recover with the support they need and go on to lead safe, hopeful and productive lives.
