Human trafficking and labour exploitation destroy life, taking away the fullness that God wants for all of us.
Vulnerable adults and children are manipulated by both their circumstances and abusers into feeling hopeless, worthless, and forgotten.
The potential for this is never far from children like Euon. Her father left when she was a baby and her mother struggles with mental health issues, so at just 15 she is the sole provider for her family.
Her main source of income comes from selling herbs, but this means she has to go into the forest alone after school to collect the plants. This puts her in great danger; traffickers target young girls alone on the edge of villages. Euon had no idea of the huge risk she was taking each day.
Cambodian Hope Organisation (CHO) are training local Christians to help protect vulnerable villages from traffickers. They have been running awareness workshops in Euon’s village and since attending she has leant about the dangers of traffickers, and how to protect herself. She is sharing her new knowledge with all of her friends, giving them all a greater hope for the future.
With your help we can we can work to prevent trafficking and reduce exploitation of children like Euon.
