Today in Cambodia up to 200,000 orphans are fighting to survive and countless more are abandoned, vulnerable and alone. Mlop Children's Home in Cambodia is fully funded by Safe Haven and provides babies and young children at immediate risk with shelter, 3 nutritious meals a day, full medical checks and care, alongside counselling and psychological support.
Our social workers work intensively with the child's family of origin, with the aim of reintegrating the child back into the family home
There are up to 200,000 orphaned and abandoned children in Cambodia. These highly vulnerable children are prey to sexual & physical abuse, child labour and trafficking. In 2008 almost 32,000 children died before the age of 5.
Existing care homes for children in Cambodia are overwhelmed and often corrupt. The children enjoy very little physical contact and stimulation. Many babies are almost never held and they stay in their cots all day, frequently in wet nappies. We work differently.
At Mlop Children's Home we help orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable babies and young children in Cambodia by providing them with shelter, medical care, food and clothing. We provide 24 hour accommodation in a loving and caring environment and deliver a programme of support, including pre-school education, counselling and play activities to ensure these children have the best start in life.
This project will have a long-term impact on the lives of at least 50 babies and children by providing love, medical care and support at a crucial stage in their development. Our Reintegration Programme works closely with the children's community of origin, with the aim of reintegrating them either back into their family home or through adoption/foster care. This project will ensure children grow up in a safe, loving family and do not spend a life in institutionalised care.
At Mlop, we have high levels of child protection and children are at the heart of everything we do . We give them a safe place to live where they are loved and cared for. Their future is now bright. - Laing Pheakdey, Co-Director, Mlop Children's Home
