Organization Name:
Cambodia Trust

Organization Type:
NGO/INGO

Mission Statement:
The Cambodia Trust was founded in 1989, by a small group of people in Oxford, UK, who decided to try and do something to help the huge numbers of landmine amputees in Cambodia. What began as a response to an emergency quickly developed into a long-term project. Our initial aim was to provide artificial limbs for the countryÕs many landmine amputees. However, in response to the needs of the wider disabled population, which includes an estimated 50,000 polio victims, the clinics evolved into full rehabilitation centres providing services for all mobility-impaired disabled people. In 1994, together with the American FriendsÕ Service Committee, the Trust founded the Cambodian School of Prosthetics and Orthotics, in order to train local people in the fitting of limbs and braces. Our aim is to help people with disability regain their mobility, dignity and self-sufficiency, so they can lead full and productive lives as part of the community.
