1.5 million children become victims of human trafficking each year. The sale of children is one of the worst kinds of abuse.
The causes of human trafficking are many and complex, but common to all cases are the cynical criminals who are responsible, and who profit from ruining the childhoods of children and young people.
In Cambodia, many people live in extreme poverty, and among these individuals, children are the most vulnerable. They are at risk of being abducted and sold as house slaves and beggars, or being forced into prostitution.
Through UNICEF, we will help child victims of human trafficking. We finance several centres in Cambodia, which give children a safe bed to sleep in, care and access to schooling. And not least, help them to return to their family or other caregivers.
Your sweet dreams make children dream sweet.
