Coalition agrees to trafficking referrals

A COALITION of anti-trafficking NGOs agreed yesterday to establish a referral service to link groups that rescue underage Cambodian domestic migrant workers from Malaysia with support services in the Kingdom. More than 60 representatives of NGOs and international organisations from Cambodia and Malaysia gathered in Phnom Penh yesterday to discuss ways of combating frequent cases of reported abuse in Cambodia’s labour recruitment industry.

Aimee Brammer, a communications and resource officer for the Chab Dai coalition of Christian NGOs in Cambodia, said yesterday that the suggested service would integrate prevention, legal, aftercare and medical services between NGOs in the two countries.
