ABA Bank supported Mother’s Heart Organization to help disadvantaged women
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.
