ChildFund International in Cambodia
Bordered by Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and the Gulf of Thailand, Cambodia struggled through decades of civil war and occupation. At least 1.5 million Cambodians died from execution, starvation and other hardships during the Khmer Rouge regime under dictator Pol Pot in the 1970s, followed by Vietnamese occupation and 13 years of civil war.
Since 2003, Cambodia's political processes have been peaceful, but the country still faces significant challenges, including poor access to education, lack of safe water and sanitation, and high rates of infectious disease.
ChildFund has served children in Cambodia since 2007.
