OBV has just completed the schedule for the annual Mission Trip, giving volunteers from other countries an opportunity to learn and experience the activities of OBV in Malaysia, Cambodia and Vietnam.
For 10 to 12 days of the Mission Trip, they will live, work, and participate in volunteer activities in areas where children are sold, such as the Children's Detention Center for victims of child sexual exploitation.
The volunteers will meet in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The first day, they will make their way to the Children's Detention Centre, housing child victims of human trafficking (sex trafficking, larbor trafficking, organ harvesting).
The representatives of OBV in Malaysia visit the children weekly, providing medication and food for the children and help them with paper work for repatriation to their respective countries. For those returning to Vietnam, OBV then assists them with rehabilitation and to obtain a job so that they can integrate back into society.
After leaving the detention centre, the mission trip group will visit the Women's Detention Centre, and the jewelry factory reserved for the survivors (so called to respect/honor the aspirations of life of the victims of sexual abuse.)
The group will then continue the trip to Cambodia, and Vietnam to visit the children of OBV in these countries.
