Healthcare Centre for Children (HCC) is a local Cambodian NGO which was established in 1998 and registered in 1999. The mission of HCC is to protect children and women's rights through advocacy and providing direct services in healthcare, educational support, social and economic development, technical support and skills training for children and young women in Cambodia. HCC's programs aim to prevent and protect children and young women from becoming victims of trafficking, sexual and drug abuses.
The official opening ceremony for HCC's "Good Day" Vocational Training Center in Kien Svay District, Kandal province, was held on 14 December 2005. This ceremony was attended by many national and international honorary guests and diplomats. The proceedings included: a blessing of the shelter by monks; a wishing dance by the children of the centre; a speech by Ms Terri Ly (Director of HCC); a speech by the Japanese Ambassador to Cambodia; a speech by His Excellency Ith Sam Heng (Minister of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation); and a ribbon cutting officially opening the centre.
In his speech at the ceremony, His Excellency Ith Sam Heng expressed that "HCC is a good partner and has good cooperation with the Ministry, and I hope we will maintain and strengthen this cooperation for the benefits of children and women who are victimized by rape and trafficking".
The HCC Vocational Training Centre was funded by a grant from the Japanese Government for over USD$60,000.
