Lovement: Cambodia

Reload Love – as a part of our ongoing effort to arm terrorism-affected children with hope – is proud to have supported the expansion of a school and playground in Poi Pet, Cambodia.

 

A Brief History:

In the 1970s, the Khmer Rouge regime carried out a genocide that led to the deaths of nearly 25 percent of Cambodia’s population. Cambodians were terrorized by the fear of forced relocation, mass executions, forced labor, and malnutrition.

This brutal campaign decimated the country’s religious, educational, and social structures—particularly the family unit—leaving a very fractured society.

The educated class and the entire education system were wiped out.

Years later, Cambodia is still one of the poorest countries in the world, and though it is slowly recovering from its dark past,

Cambodian children still remain extremely vulnerable to exploitation and terrorism.
