LWB has provided family care to thousands of orphaned children since we first launched our foster care program in China over a decade ago. When we decided to begin working with orphaned and vulnerable children in Cambodia, we knew that foster care would once again be an essential part of our work. What we didn't know at the time was that we would be called upon to help some of the most vulnerable children in that country - those who had been victims of child trafficking and severe abuse.
We know it is difficult to even think about, but Cambodia remains a prime source country for young children trafficked into sexual exploitation and forced labor. Many are taken across the border and live through things no child should ever experience. Police in those countries round up children they find every single day. In just one year alone, at least 145,000 children found in Thailand were deported by truck to the Cambodian border. Here they are let out, often completely on their own, to face a very uncertain future.
YOU can change that!
Love Without Boundaries is now working along the border region of Cambodia to help these children have a safe place to heal. Our new Safe Haven foster care program places children traumatized from trafficking and abuse into sheltered home environments. Through this family care, they receive the nutrition and medical care they need, and they are able to attend school, often for the first time in their lives. The children’s progress is monitored closely while reunification efforts are investigated.
Join with us today to help a vulnerable child find HOPE. Make a one-time donation to our Safe Haven foster care program or sign up as a monthly sponsor for a specific child. Sponsors will receive regular updates and photos, but it is important to note that, for the safety of the children in this program, the faces of the children will not be shown. Thank you for making a tremendous difference in these deserving children's lives.
