To​ uphold​ its​ CSR​ policy​ and​ to​ contribute​ in​ empowering​ Cambodian​ women,​ ABA​ Bank​ proudly​ co-organized​ a​ fundraising​ event​ called​ “Heart​ of​ the​ Party”​ with​ Mother’s​ Heart​ Organization​ on​ June​ 1,​ 2018​ to​ support​ disadvantaged​ single​ mothers​ and​ their​ newborns.

The​ event​ aimed​ at​ raising​ funds,​ equivalent​ to​ $8,000,​ which​ could​ help​ support​ 12​ beneficiaries​ for​ one​ full​ year​ to​ have​ successful​ pregnancy​ and​ safe​ delivery​ as​ well​ as​ to​ provide​ postnatal​ care​ for​ their​ infants.​

Commenting​ on​ the​ event,​ Theam​ Romny,​ Regional​ Manager​ of​ ABA​ Bank​ said,​ “I​ am​ so​ glad​ to​ be​ here​ representing​ ABA​ Bank​ for​ such​ a​ good​ cause,​ and​ that​ ABA​ is​ honored​ to​ be​ part​ of​ a​ great​ initiative​ to​ support​ this​ segment​ of​ Cambodian​ population.”​ She​ also​ added,​ “as​ a​ mother​ myself,​ I​ know​ how​ hard​ pregnancy​ and​ parenting​ are.​ So,​ I​ do​ hope​ that​ these​ funds​ will​ generate​ a​ ripple​ effect​ when​ the​ women​ we​ help​ become​ financially​ independent​ and​ be​ an​ active​ citizen​ going​ forward.”​

With​ great​ success,​ the​ Heart​ of​ the​ Party​ has​ exceeded​ its​ target,​ raising​ over​ $8,000​ generated​ from​ tickets​ to​ the​ event,​ raffles,​ and​ a​ silent​ auction​ that​ just​ ended​ this​ Sunday,​ June​ 10,​ 2018.
