The problem

Cambodia has laws seeking to protect its vulnerable people from slavery but:

The solution

Chab Dai is International Needs NZ’s partner to help fight trafficking in Cambodia. Chab Dai is a confederation of 40 anti-trafficking agencies led internationally by Mrs. Helen Sworn and in Cambodia by Ros Yeng and a team of committed Christian Cambodians. Chab Dai see the best way to tackle the trafficking problem is to have independently funded lawyers who will assist people rescued from trafficking.

  1. Give generously to help us reach our target of US $28,000?
  2. Consider a regular monthly amount towards the ongoing funding of the lawyer and his legal assistant? We will send you progress updates twice a year on the impact our legal team is having.
  3. Helen Sworn, the international leader of Chab Dai, is being hosted by INNZ, in NZ from September 8th to 25th. Could she speak at your church, community group or midweek meeting that you connect with? Contact me at ed@internationalneeds.org.nz. If you would like a full copy of the proposal please email ed@internationalneeds.org.nz

Held for 5 years, no pay, working 3am-6pm everyday — no escape...

"'Mabel' a 26-year-old Cambodian woman, was recruited by a Malaysian couple to be a housemaid. On her arrival in Malaysia, she was taken to a house where she met her employers. She was made to clean their house, but was also sent to the market to sell things. She had to work every day from 3.00am until 6pm. She was also physically abused by employers and unable to contact her family. She was held there for five years. She did not receive any salary. She managed to plan her escape by borrowing a phone from a co-worker in the market where she was required to work. Her sister reported the matter to the authorities, who contacted Chab Dai. Chab Dai referred the matter to a partner NGO in Malaysia, who contacted Mabel by calling back on the borrowed phone. Arrangements were made to meet Mabel near where she lived and she was then able to leave the house and taken to a shelter, where she stayed for three months. Finally, she was repatriated to Cambodia in April 2016. Chab Dai is now initiating vocational training with a partner organisation."

We ask for help as we join with the vulnerable to achieve ONE purpose: to transform lives and change communities.
