Robert Barclay and The Sunlight Foundation

The Sunlight Foundation

The trafficking of children to paedophiles, some as young as four or five years old, is the vilest crime in our society. As Director of my own charity, The Sunlight Foundation, I work with other charities who are doing heroic work in Cambodia rescuing and restoring the lives of young children sold into this evil trade. These children are our children and we all have a responsibility to act.

The Tragedy of Cambodia

I have visited many places in Cambodia and seen first-hand the grinding poverty that feeds the trafficking of children for sex. The hardest question to answer is always: why? Why do mothers sell their daughter's virginity and why is Cambodia the centre of this monstrous crime? Read my story here to understand part of the answer.

Ask Robert

I'm always happy to answer questions about my books and articles and especially about the work of The Sunlight Foundation
