Sadly, the horrors of domestic violence show themselves all too often around Steung Meanchey. The lethal mix of unemployment, abject poverty and substance abuse comes to a head in the cramped living conditions, causing violent situations to erupt regularly.
Our trained counsellors work to bring some kind of peace to this area. We work intensively with families, helping them identify the cause and what triggers a violent outburst. We teach them problem-solving skills to help them work through issues in a peaceful way and reduce the incidence of violence. We provide free counselling to any community people who face domestic violence whenever they need help.
