The Women in Travel Retail (WiTR) meeting at the TFWA Asia Pacific show featured a special address by Geraldine Cox, founder of Sunrise Cambodia, whose work with vulnerable children we have been supporting.
Cox founded Sunrise Cambodia in 1993. Since then she has poured her heart and soul into providing safety, education and a loving home to hundreds of children across Cambodia who have been rescued from physical and sexual abuse, begging rings, trafficking and illegal adoption rackets.
“Sunrise is a haven for them,” says Cox, “There’s a wonderful feeling of family, even those who grow up and leave still keep in touch.” Since Sunrise Cambodia’s centres also provide education to children in the community, its total reach is in the thousands. It is urgently in need of funds to continue the work.
