Cambodia // January 2013

My blogs related to my experiences in Cambodia // rescuing the children // remember // first impression // context // reflecting on context // psalm 13 // my brain // collaboration // language barrier? // transition // stark and inaccurate // ocean // post Cambodia // where is God now // flashback

Look into these organizations and support them!

Agape International // “Agape International Missions (AIM) was founded on the ground in Cambodia in 1989 as a humanitarian aid and church planting organization in Cambodia. Since 2005, our ministries have focused on ending the evil of child sexual slavery. AIM is guided by a distinct philosophy that God anointed the Church through the power of Jesus to overcome evil. That belief combined with a holistic approach of Fighting Trafficking, Restoring Victims, and Transforming Communities, has made AIM extremely successful in creating long-term change.” http://agapewebsite.org/

Chab Dai // “Chab Dai Coalition, located in Phnom Penh, is a network of 50 Christian organizations in Cambodia working against trafficking and exploitation through prevention, aftercare, reintegration, and livelihood development.” http://chabdai.org/cambodia.html

Childsafe // “The ChildSafe Team is a young and flexible and most importantly – compassionate team of Cambodian, Thai, Laotian staff as well as of 1 or 2 expatriate assistants in each country. Our international support offices spread the ChildSafe message in their countries, all on a voluntary basis.” http://www.childsafe-international.org/cambodia/cscambodia.asp

Daughters (and Sons) of Cambodia // “Daughters’ centre, in the heart of an area of Phnom Penh brothels, reaches out to girls (and boys) working as sex workers and offers them ways out of this situation and into a life of safety, freedom and dignity, where they can find wholeness and become all that God created them to be. Daughters has developed a unique model in Cambodia, one in which sex workers come directly to the organization from the brothels by their own choice. They come because they are already motivated to change their lives, and Daughters gives them the choices and dignity to build a different future, — one that is sustainable and respects their human rights.”

Friends // “There are an estimated 100 million street children worldwide. Friends-International believes that together we can build a world where no child or young person has to live or work on the streets.” http://www.friends-international.org/

Hagar // “Our purpose is singular; we restore broken lives. We welcome the toughest of human conditions. We stay focused on the individual. And we do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to restore life in all its fullness.” http://hagarinternational.org/international/

International Justice Mission // “IJM is a human rights agency that brings rescue to victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local officials to secure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators and to ensure that public justice systems – police, courts and laws – effectively protect the poor.” http://www.ijm.org/
