MISSION

Our mission starts by stopping for the one in front of us. We aim to set up safe houses to rescue and restore children by giving them life and love. In order to see this injustice come to an end, we must also challenge the mindsets that are deeply rooted in the culture of Cambodia, and fight against the causes of human trafficking. We will do this by working with other NGOs, members of the local community, and the government.

About Cambodia

Iris Cambodia is a team of 30 local and international passionate followers of Jesus who want to see Cambodia transformed. We will facilitate the rescue and restoration of young children who are being abused, exploited and/or trafficked. We will also work with at risk individuals to prevent them from such exploitation and abuse. Our current focus and commitment has been on Cambodia and in the future we aim to work with surrounding nations given the high international profile of Cambodia as a source, transit and destination country for human trafficking. We have multiple projects running that help To bring hope and life to those around us that are stuck in darkness.

Our head office is in Phnom Penh , the country’s capital. With a population of over 2 million people, this city is a hotspot for trafficking, and sex tourism. We are joining forces with various other NGOs working to rescue the vast numbers of child sex slaves who are in Phnom Penh. We also have two other bases , situated a few hours south of Phnom Penh. Each year, thousands of tourists pass through These places, attracted by its sunshine, beaches, bars, and restaurants. However, sex tourism is a huge industry here also. We are setting up a boys’ day centre here so that we can identify those most in need of our help and start the process of rescue.
