What They Do
Child Helpline Cambodia provides free, 24 hour phone counseling, information, referral and follow-up services for children and youth up to 25 years old in Cambodia. They allow children and young people to reach out when they need it, in real time and speak directly with someone in a safe and confidential environment via the free 1280 helpline, here on the website as well as through text messages to 1293.
They view every contact with a child or young person as important, and depending on the need, their phone counselors will either provide emotional support or information to empower clients to make decisions for themselves, or refer the clients to the appropriate partner organization to receive direct services such as food, shelter, medical care or legal advice.
