About CFS

Cambodia Family Support (CFS) is a registered Cambodian non-profit organisation, founded in 2008.

The organisation is run by Cambodians for Cambodians. It works among the rural poor in Battambang province, and more recently, Pailin province, using a holistic approach to poverty reduction.

Sister organisations in Australia (CFSA) and the USA (CFSUSA) help raise awareness and funding, and provide some technical assistance on a totally voluntary basis.

Learn more about Cambodia’s tragic history – and why the work of our organisation is so important – in this 2015 video.
