Safe Haven Foster Care in Cambodia
Earlier this year we introduced our newest foster care program for children in Cambodia who had been trafficked or abused. Our Safe Haven program quickly filled with children who had lived through the unthinkable, ranging in age from babies to pre-teen. Each intake form we received had a child’s story that broke our hearts, and we’ve all been so grateful to the compassionate people who’ve stepped forward to sponsor a child into a secure foster care placement. One of the first issues we faced, however, is that psychologists and counselors are few and far between in Cambodia, and the limited ones in practice are all located far from the rural region where we are working.
