Supporting Project Freedom

Project Freedom is based out of the ‘White House’ in Phnom Penh. The project aims to support the vulnerable who are living in slum dwellings and surviving on minimal resources and money. Our social workers aim to improve the mental and physical health of vulnerable groups in Cambodia, particularly women and children that are vulnerable to trafficking.

We are also having our annual climb on the 3rd of August, so save the date!
