Smiles, Laughter, and Rapha House
Smiles and laughter. That’s what you see and hear at a Rapha House safehouse. And that catches you by surprise.
You would think that having gone through what these girls have gone through that smiles and laughter would be the last thing you’d encounter at a safehouse for trafficked and exploited children. But these places are filled with joy. And that’s purely delightful.
This is what you do when you support Rapha House: You bring unforced smiles and spontaneous laughter back to children. What a precious gift!
Each Rapha House safe house is a place where girls have the chance to reclaim their lost childhood. Each day our girls are treated with love and value instead of abuse and neglect. And for many of these girls this is the first time they have been treated that way.
By supporting Rapha House, you give girls…
- a safe place to live and sleep
- three meals every day, including snacks
- a chance to go to school and to learn a trade
- medical and dental care
- psychological counseling
- legal aid
- opportunities for spiritual growth
- and more
But most of all, you give them a chance to be loved without an agenda.
Local experts, from the countries and communities, where each Rapha House is located make up the staff of our safehouses. They understand the culture. They understand how to work with these children. And they care. Our staff make “Love•Rescue•Heal” more than a slogan. For them, it’s a way of life.
With experts like these and your help, trafficked and exploited children are finding real hope and lasting freedom. Perhaps Srey Mom said it best: “Before I came to Rapha House, I never thought about the future. Now I have dreams about what my life will be.”

I strongly believe that love is the answer and that it can mend even the deepest unseen wounds. Love can heal, love can console, love can strengthen, and yes, love can make change.
