2. Child Protection Shelter

Grant Montgomery Travelogue: Child Protection Shelter in Phnom Penh

Cambodia Family Care 08

Unfortunately, Cambodia is a country where child prostitution and trafficking is rampant.

Among the Family Care Cambodia projects that I visited in Phnom Penh is a Child Protection Shelter that is home to 35 children, mostly girls, between the ages of 5 – 17, who have been rescued from abusive situations or sexual exploitation.

CAMBODIA Child ShelterThanks to a grant from a British donor, this past year we were able to renovate and construct a second story for the shelter that provided 3 additional bedrooms for the children & staff, a classroom, recreation room & toilet facilities.

This also allowed a boost to the educational facilities, including their own computer training lab.
