Mercy Global in Cambodia
Mercy Global partners with an organization in Phnom Penh to run a program for children who are vulnerable to sexual exploitation and/or abuse. Our aim is to spread God's hope and love into the lives of those children and to partner with God's powerful movement in Cambodia.
Cambodia is in the process of recovering from the brutal rule of Pol Pot and the large genocide that swept through the nation 40 years ago. The country has been going through uneven economic development and government corruption, which has left the poorer population, especially the children, vulnerable to sex trafficking. Our partner organization works with the government and various other NGOs to fight against pedophiles who specifically come to Cambodia to exploit children in the red light district. They currently work with 400 children in the heart of Phnom Penh in the hopes of bringing light into the places full of darkness.
