Empowering women to escape the clutches of poverty

Operation Blessing works to empower women to earn a better living and enable their children to escape the clutches of poverty

A little girl finds justice with the help of her grandfather and Operation Blessing partners

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia – An only child raised by her grandfather, 7-year-old Kanya* found a sister in neighborhood friend Chenda*. The girls, who were both from families too poor to send them to school, spent their days playing make-believe and roaming their rural village together.

When a middle-aged Australian man befriended them, they were excited to play in his big house and eagerly accepted his kind offers of candy and sometimes food or money they could bring home to their families.
