The Cambodia Trust

The Cambodia Trust, established as a reaction to the terrible legacy of landmines in Cambodia, is now the world’s leader in the training of Prosthetists (those who fit artificial legs) and Orthotists (those who fit supports and corrective devices).  The knowledge and expertise developed in Cambodia is now being applied across the region, in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Philippines and Myanmar, to impact the lives of those with disabilities.

Working with local partners and Governments, we bring free and functional prosthetic and orthotic services to the Southeast Asia region. We do this through providing professional training schools, quality rehabilitation services, small business support and by facilitating access to education and employment.

The work of The Cambodia Trust opens up a whole new world of opportunities for persons with disabilities: Opportunities for education and employment and opportunities to participate in the life of the community. Even more than that, our work restores dignity and hope to people who are often rejected by society.
