Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams are now in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. All official EMI travel (including project travel) has been cancelled or postponed and no new travel plans are being prepared until further notice. EMI’s worldwide offices are in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home as they are able.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

EMI is excited to support the Promised Land Association by developing their new campus designed to provide refuge, care and hope to victims of trafficking and abuse.

Project Scope

In 2012, Promised Land Association was established in Cambodia with a mission to impact impoverished communities and help prevent trafficking and abuse. After two years of working with the government and the Ministry of Social Affairs, in 2014, PLA received permission to open a home for girls that have been rescued from various abuses including rape, domestic violence, and trafficking. 

.As PLA has built relationships with the government and developed a reputation for caring well for these girls, they have outgrown their current facility. In 2019, EMI completed a survey of a new property, and now we are continuing to support this critical work by providing structural engineering design for new dormitories to be constructed in 2021. 

Due to current travel restrictions, this project will not include a traditional EMI trip. If you are interested to volunteer your time and expertise, please click on the links below! Together with our local staff in the Cambodia office, we continue to design hope, one project at a time.
