The Orphan Business
Season 2  |  Episode 4  |  ABC  |  August 6, 2014

It's a business that's enabling one of the darkest crimes of this century and Australians are unwittingly helping the business to grow and flourish. It's the twisted world of orphanage tourism in Cambodia, where 'orphans' - around 75% of whom have parents - are used as pawns in an industry that turns over huge amounts of money annually, much of it coming from well-intentioned Australians.
