The second Cambodia National Interfaith Forum on Combating Human Trafficking took place on 30 August 2018.
The event brought together government officials, leaders of different faith groups and non-governmental organisations working against trafficking. The forum was presided over by Samdech Kralahom Sar Kheng, Deputy Prime Minister of Cambodia, Minister of Interior and Chairman of the National Committee for Countering Trafficking.
The main purposes of the forum were threefold:
- to raise awareness and knowledge of trafficking-related issues;
- to promote broader engagement and participation of different faith groups, the general public and stakeholders to combat trafficking;
- to advocate the government to observe the day as the “national interfaith prayer day against trafficking”.
CCC was represented at the event by Mission Co-ordinator Ms Huot Chanthoeun.
