“Sak Saum” is a verb in Khmer, the primary language of Cambodia, meaning to restore to original condition, to remake as new filled with dignity, value, and beauty. For over 15 years, Sak Saum has worked to prevent, rescue, restore, rehabilitate, and transform the vulnerable and exploited people of Cambodia. "In orphanages we heard the cry of children, 'If my mom had a job, I would have my family.' 'If my mom had a job, she would not have to work as a prostitute.' No child should call this reality! The founders of Sak Saum were there to hear; face to face, heart to heart, mourning beside these little ones. In faith, they started with one mom, one sewing machine, and one precious baby who would grow into a bright future. Since then Sak Saum created a nurturing, empowering, restorative program that has healed hundreds of lives.
