At CDS Recycling we not only believe in and practice sustainability within the environment and waste industry but also within our direct community of children via the following avenues:
SU (Scripture Union) QLD
We support SU Qld and their vision of bringing hope to a young generation through their school chaplaincy
service, camping, community outreach and kids-at-risk programs.
Through positive and supportive relationships, SU aim to help young people with everyday life issues, as well
as the more critical ones like substance abuse, relationship issues, family breakdown, depression and low
self-esteem. Committed to this cause, SU Qld became involved with school chaplaincy in 1990 with interest in
school chaplaincy continuing to grow to this day.
A huge boost of funding from the federal government in 2007 saw the number of SU QLD chaplains jump from
200 to 500 within a very short timeframe. However, the funding has gone directly to the schools to employ the chaplains. Which means that employing authorities like SU Qld have to raise their own funds to provide the critical infrastructure that the system relies on. Also, the government funding is only seed funding. Every year all chaplains need to rely on their own fundraising efforts to stay in schools.
Consider supporting SU QLD and ensure chaplains and SU Qld remain in schools so that we can bring hope to a young generation!

SHE Rescue Home
A She Rescue Home is a secure haven for young Cambodian girls who are at risk or who have been rescued
from being trafficked. Each of these beautiful girls deserves a safe and secure place to live, where counselling,
medical attention, and educational and vocational training can take place in a safe and loving location.
While a child‟s tragic journey into prostitution is sometimes due to a family‟s financial struggle, many families
are lured or tricked into thinking their children are being offered a legitimate education or job. Trapped in this
world, they are held captive against their will. Threatened with violence, they are imprisoned between two
worlds of unimaginable pain.
Many under age girls are victims of these types of circumstances. Mu Soc Hua, Cambodia‟s minister of women‟s affairs, estimates that there are “around 30,000” young children being exploited in the sex trade in her country. Despite the efforts of the Cambodian government, children are continually being offered for sale. Mu Soc Hua says, it will take years to overcome the extreme poverty and widespread corruption that causes the child sex trade to flourish.
While there is still one child who is at risk of trafficking or enslaved in prostitution, SHE Rescue Homes will continue to provide a safe haven for them.
