Transcultural Psychosocial Organisation (TPO)

Ta Ann Village, Cambodia



The 'Healing and Reconciliation for Victims of Torture of Khmer Rouge Trauma' program brings communities together to ease the suffering of victims who experienced trauma at the hands of the Khmer Rouge. The Cambodian Non-Government Organisation TPO started the program to give victims the opportunity to heal through group therapy and expression. A week-long program culminates in a Buddhist ceremony where those who suffered most share their testimonies with their village to express grief, heal, and pay respect to their deceased relatives.
