Legal aid is a core activity of the Cambodian Defenders Project. In particularly, the legal aid is very important project in transitional countries. Without legal aid, the legal and judicial reform cannot be done effectively and the democracy cannot be realized. But it is unpopular for donors and very hard to find fund for legal aid.
Every year, thousands of poor people were arrested, many poor people were supposed to be forced for eviction because they lost their cases in court. Main causes for their lost are lacks of lawyers. As we know that the social injustice can cause political instablitiy, therefore the legal aid at least can help the people feel justice after trial.
On behalf of poor people, I would like to appeal all donors and all people who love justice and support rule of law and democracy, to help legal aid NGOs in transitional countries.
