Child Rescue supports the rescue of children from sex trafficking in Cambodia and helps them stay free. The reintegration services offered are culturally-relevant and focus on each child’s future. Kids also experience Christ’s love and care from servant-hearted staff.

Work in Cambodia
Our rescue agents go undercover in brothels, bars and on the streets to find children being sexually exploited. Once found, we build trust with them and offer a way out.
Community care is a service where survivors live at home and follow a reintegration program called a Freedom Plan. They’re also given nutritional, medical and emotional support and vocational training.
Our reintegration team creates personalised plans for each child after their rescue to help them stay free. These plans involve reducing a child’s vulnerabilities such as debt, lack of education or mental-health concerns while providing new opportunities for growth and stability.
We team up with many businesses and organisations that can provide children with quality education or safe employment.
We operate rescue and reintegration programs in multiple countries across the world. Learn more about our mission to help end child sexual exploitation and trafficking in our lifetime.Learn More
