30 Children Rescued from Brick Factories

Over the last several months, the Agape International Missions (AIM) SWAT Team together with the Siem Reap police in Cambodia rescued 30 children who were being exploited at brick factories. This was a result of AIM’s involvement with the case of a 9-year-old girl who tragically lost her arm in an accident with a machine while working at a Kandal province brick factory and it was clear to them then that the sheer number of children working at these factories in appalling conditions demanded a response.

Despite difficult obstacles along the way, the AIM team was diligent in their efforts to remove 30 children from dangerous and hazardous working conditions over the course of five months. They are now safe, healthy and are either studying at school or receiving vocational training; opportunities that otherwise they would have never had.
