Daughters of Cambodia
HELPING TO FREE SLAVES OF THE SEX TRADE!!!
Daughters of Cambodia really touches my heart because they are faith based Christ believers who are helping individuals who feel trapped in the sex industry to free themselves and bringing them to Jesus Christ while doing so.
All this, in Cambodia!!! If you don't know Cambodia was the place where massive genocide was carried out by people in power between 1975-1979 killing an estimated 1.5 to 3 million people. The Khmer Rouge planned to form Stalinism and Maoism rule over the country. This rulership used torture, massive executions as well as forced labour and forced relocation and disease leading to the deaths of approximately 2 million people (25 percent of the population).
In 1979, Viet Nam invaded Cambodia putting an end to the genocide.
23, 745 mass graves were discovered in 2009.
On January 2, 2001, the Cambodian government passed legislation to try some of the Khmer Rouge rulers. On February 17, 2009, trials began and 2 individuals, Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan, were found guilty for crimes against humanity. Both received life sentences.

As well, if you like to sew maybe you can send them something like a travel bag, some kind of bag that traveling tourists might like to buy to help support them as they can sell this in their shop. I have to say the gifts I saw that were hand sewn in their shop were beautiful. I mean the sewing itself was such beautiful quality!
