Cambodia's Orphan Business

Al Jazeera

This article sheds light on the money-making industry of orphanages and orphanage voluntourism in Cambodia. The article highlights a documentary film - People & Power, Cambodia's Orphan Business - which reveals how “voluntourism” contributes to, and perpetuates the orphanage industry, causing children to be separated from their families and exploited. In the film, “reporter Juliana Ruhfus and director Matt Haan travel to Phnom Penh to investigate this phenomenon and end up as 'undercover volunteers' in a failing orphanage.”
