Volunteering In Orphanages

While wanting to volunteer to brighten the lives of children is noble, it isn’t worth the trauma that the children experience once the volunteer to whom they’ve become attached leaves.

This video clip from a documentary by Sabour Bradley touches on that, but it also says that the orphanage industry in Cambodia tries to meet the demand of these ‘voluntourists’ by ensuring a stock of orphans is always available.

It also briefly mentions sex tourists, but doesn’t give any further information on the scale of that problem.

The full documentary is available to buy on Google Play or on iTunes.
