Did you know that we also help children who have been traumatized by sexual abuse and assault?

The volunteers spent 3 days with our 16 children in Phnom Penh. They shared the same roof, meals, laughs, cries, and everything in between. Nancy, one of the volunteers even taught the girls yoga!

Malaysia has always been a destination that I wanted to visit and explore. I’ve heard much about the beauty of the landscape, the richness of the culture and the endless selection of delectable foods. Touching down and driving through Kuala Lumpur gave me an uncomforta...

I’ve missed Cambodia ever since my first trip there in 2012. It is a country with a tragic history, yet it is also a country of so much hope. Despite the progress lost due to the tyrannical reign of the Khmer Rouge, the country has seen a remarkable recovery. What was...
