EDUCATING CHILDREN. ENRICHING LIVES.
Lighthouse Children's Refuge (LCR) Center in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, was created to provide a safe shelter for many Vietnamese children and young teens living in the floating village. These are children who do not have a place to go to during the day due to their lack of having a family to care for them, difficult family situations, and extreme poverty. While many of these children might have living relatives, they are unable to provide the basic needs for the children such as food, clothing, personal hygiene, education, etc.; and many of them get sold into modern-day slavery by their families or relatives when coming of age. Once they are sold, there isn't much we can do to bring them back as most of these cases are tied to mafia gangs and corruptions. Therefore, we try our best to reach out to these families ahead of time in order to prevent these sad situations from happening to their children and to give them hope for the future.
.FEED .TEACH .RELEASE
We don't call LIGHTHOUSE CHILDREN'S REFUGE (LCR) an Orphanage, but rather a REFUGE CENTER because these children are not necessary orphans, but only lack loved ones. We want them to know that God loves them, and we love them. Whether or not they have parents or relatives, we want to show them that God is their Father who loves them unconditionally, and we are their Mothers who will take care of them, those who love, care, feed, teach, support, and pray for them from all over the world.
How is LCR helping?
Paul Ai Ministries - Vietnamese Outreach International (VOI) and LCR Sponsors fill in the gap to give these children the essential needs and education that they deserve but can rarely afford. We give them the basic needs like food, clothing, education materials, hygiene products; while teaching them how to read and write in different languages including Vietnamese, Khmer, and English. At the same time we have volunteers to teach them other subjects like math and nurture them with many skills like computer, music, sew, and cook, etc., to better these children's lives. Then they can develop personal skills, grow up, find legal work, and contribute back to their family and community in the future. Later, they can help other children in need with Lighthouse Children's Refuge in Cambodia and their community.
