About Ratanak International

Break the Cycle, RIDE for Freedom


Cambodia has a long history of poverty, exploitation, and abuse that has robbed many of their dignity and freedom – subjecting the vulnerable to extreme violence and sexual trauma. Traffickers prey on vulnerability to illegally sell children, women, and men into forced labour or sexual slavery. Survivors who escape experience emotional, physical and economic hardships which make them extremely vulnerable to re-exploitation. Thousands of people are vulnerable to exploitation in Cambodia, but we believe that together we can change that.


Ratanak International works with Cambodians to restore those robbed of freedom and protect the vulnerable. We walk with survivors of trafficking on their journey from exploitation to freedom and hope, showing them the same love Jesus shows us. Join us in this freedom movement!


RIDE with us on October 1 at our Ratanak in-person event at Mundy Park in Coquitlam, BC. Invite your friends and family to join you, fundraise or donate to transform lives in Cambodia.


If you don't reside in BC, you can still join us by riding or walking in your province. We would love to have riders and walkers from all across Canada! When you sign-up, simply choose the option of joining OUT OF TOWN.
