NGO'S THIRST 4 MONEY

A year has past since Cambodia Daily reporter Simon Marks exposed the Somaly Mam Foundation fraud in a story that was published y Newsweek Magazine that sent chills throughout the NGO community who were concerned that the scam revelation would effect their funding. Since that time it's SOS in NGO-ville as the beat goes on with their emphasis on raising money to warehouse children while not having and exit plan.

The exit plan is what are these NGO's doing to prepare the children they warehouse and expose in the documentaries for life after being housed at an NGO? The documentaries are produced for the most part by ambitious young filmmakers that want to pad their CV's and embellish their film credits and help raise money for the NGO's. Basically these child abuse victims are used as pawns by opportunist NGO's and filmmakers.

In 25 years of observing and reporting on this subject very little has been done to stop the child sex problem. While NGO's and filmmakers dance around the root causes of the crisis the child sex industry continues to flourish.

Recently Channel News Asia aired another documentary furnished by Make Productions that was basically promoting the NGO Cambodia Children's Fund. The report focused on how dire child abuse is and expressed the need for… (The magic word)… FUNDING.

The Cambodian Children's Fund is headed by Scott Neeson who formerly was the president of 20th Century Fox International. Neeson pointed out how he left behind the company that paid him a million dollars a year, a home in the hills of Brentwood, which is adjacent to the famed Beverly Hills, private plane trips the Academy Awards and beautiful girlfriends to come to Cambodia to help abused children. This information is the sizzle on what this subject is portrayed as steak.

The piece went on to focus on how Neeson spends the funding which includes having a private police unit titled the Child Protection Unit (CPU) that works with the Cambodian national police in investigating child sex crimes and gathering evidence.

When you take into account that several years ago a CNN filmmaker, which we referred to as the Rhinestone Rambo, came to Cambodia with the mission of exposing the child sex industry was also working with the police. Rambo's mission was thwarted when after he filmed a brothel with his camera watch and showed to evidence to the police a raid the following day was planned.

The shocker was when they arrived at the premises it was EMPTY since someone tipped them off about the intended raid. You can place this in the GO FIGURE file but if you're half smart you can figure out who the insider tipster was. The Rhinestone Rambo then panicked and realized that everyone knew who he was thus he and his pretty girlfriend departed Cambodia ASAP and returned to the United States to raise more money.

The Channel News Asia documentary focused on the need and not solutions, most importantly what is the fund doing to prepare the children to enter the work force with skills that came help them survive in the real adult world. It also promoted another NGO in which one of its staff is accused of abusing children under his care. This NGO APLE is the most publicized NGO in the child sex industry and it's president Samleng Seila leader is the most quoted figure in the anti child sex NGO business.

The documentary also showed several pedophiles. One ran an NGO to assist children that scavenge the trash dumps to find things they can sell to earn money to buy food. Another PEDO (as we call them) was a volunteer at an orphanage. He was caught in a guesthouse by police with two very young children around 12 years old and arrested.

Prior to his arrest the subject gained access to children by posing and volunteering as a doctor. He was given permission to do so without supplying any credentials.

The revelations are interesting but the purpose of many anti child sex documentaries is to arouse alarm, raise money and embellish a film production resume.

When you hear stories of NGO staff paying themselves $300 a day per diem that translates to $109,200 a year plus their salaries one can clearly see how some NGO's plunder money. When you consider the math of a woman receiving only $10 a month from a brothel owner for her child to have sex which translates into that mother would have to live 10,920 months or 910 years to receive that amount of money.

On another occasion at a book signing at 6:30 PM we overheard one NGO staff conversing with another. One said he was on his 2nd (alcoholic) drink and had to make five more stops that evening and have a beer at each one. He went on to explain that it was his job.

Again and again these documentaries serve as instruments for fund raising of NGO's and causing public alarm. The situation is real but is not being properly addressed as it's always about raising money from which NGO staffs earn huge salaries and live a colonialist lifestyle while the children are not being prepared for life after their NGO experience. It's a no brainer that the NGO's can't house them forever so what are they doing about it?
