Saroeun Sek is Cambodia's director of legal, and IJM Cambodia's first on staff lawyer. He once worked as a DJ in a bar where girls were abused and sold for sex. Saroeun withnessed the violence and cruelty, and heard their heartbreaking stories.
He first encountered the word of God after agreeing to work as an informant for an IJM investigator, who gave him a Bible and hold Saroeun to read it when he was scared. Saroeun never left the Bible behind.
In 2003, Saroen started his legal career and through his work, hundreds of survivors have found justice and criminals have been held accountable for their crimes.

Can children attend?
The day will feature sensitive stories of abuse and injustice which will not be suitable for children. IJM is also unable to provide any childcare for the day. We therefore strongly recommend that children do not come to the conference. However, there will be no charge for children under the age of 5 who do attend, but please note that no food will be provided for them, although there will be a facility to heat up baby food.
Is food provided?
Your ticket price includes coffee and tea throughout the day, but not lunch. There are several places to buy lunch in the area, but you are also welcome to bring a packed lunch to eat in the venue foyer.
Can I volunteer?
Individuals are able to sign up to serve at the National Prayer Gathering as a volunteer, rather than an delegate. Volunteers serve IJM to ensure the smooth running of the day, in roles designated by IJM. Volunteers receive free entry to the event and most will be able to watch the main plenary sessions throughout the day. Some travel expenses will be covered by IJM.
If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
