" As a Mum to three kids myself, I was deeply moved by the poverty I experienced, along with the hope that blooms into bigger hope when people are given a hand up. It's been encouraging to be a part of something so vital, and I continue to be inspired to read the stories that come from Mother’s Heart."

Chris Stain

"Something significant about Mother's Heart is that they help some women to escape the sex industry and to avoid being caught up in human trafficking.

I consider it a privilege to be able to support the valuable work of Mother's Heart Cambodia."

Coral Fokkens

"I am impressed with the standard of care for mums and babies and love the way you support the mums through pregnancy, through birth, and then through parental counselling. I believe that you use the money wisely and the standard of everything you do is equal to any program run in the West."
