Child Protection

Our commitment to child protection

Safe Haven Medical Outreach is dedicated to the care and well-being of the children and families in our program, as part of our wider commitment to human rights and the rights of children everywhere.

As a medical outreach program for children with disabilities and medical issues, Safe Haven’s ultimate priority is the safety and well being of vulnerable children with disabilities and medical conditions, and we have a duty of care towards any child directly associated with or involved in our program.

At Safe Haven, we are committed to protect children from abuse, exploitation, violence or neglect. We are also committed to upholding the principles of UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, the Cambodian constitution, and current and future Cambodian laws and tools on child rights.

Safe Haven commits to ensuring that the protection, privacy, dignity and best interests of the children and families we work with are respected in all of our communications, including all marketing, fundraising and multimedia communications.

It is our unwavering policy to reject child abuse and exploitation without reservation, and to work towards fostering a safe environment for children both at home and Cambodian society at large.

All of our employees, volunteers, interns, prospective employees, consultants, board members and partner organization members and visitors commit to abiding by Safe Haven’s Child Protection Policy and Code of Conduct for Safe Haven Personnel. All personnel are required to acknowledge their receipt of the Child Protection Policy and their understanding of their responsibilities under it before commencing any work with Safe Haven.

Please contact us if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about our commitment to child protection.
