The Wen Giving Foundation has been supporting Awareness Cambodia’s medical stream – Operation Nightingale – since 2014.
WEN Giving (the foundation set up by the Wen family from Malaysia, founders of Selangor Properties Berhad in Kuala Lumpur and Hawaiian Pty Ltd in Perth) has provided vital support to ON’s programs and activities. In 2014, the foundation financed the full-time employment of Dr Chenda, ON’s Medical Director, which opened new opportunities for us to address the health needs of the poor in provincial Cambodia.
In 2015, Wen Giving also generously donated a new Ford Everest 4-wheel drive (together with all running costs for 12 months) to ON. The vehicle enables our medical staff to reach deep into rural Cambodia where the help is so desperately needed.
The Wen Giving partnership is helping save lives!

Perth College is one of WA’s leading independent schools, whose graduates are, confident, caring and determined young women.
Since 2005 Perth College has sent students to visit Awareness Cambodia’s place of education and shelter, where the girls immerse themselves in the day-to-day lives of the young children. This journey changes the students’ perspectives and empowers them; they see how other people live and begin to understand the value of community, the effects of poverty and the hope that Cambodians have.
Through Perth College’s fundraising efforts over the years, our facilities have been greatly improved – from creating a playground at Sunshine House to providing furniture for Graduation House, and much, much more.
Perth College has demonstrated their mission of living generously and we can’t thank them enough for this ongoing support of our programmes for over ten years.
Dreambuilders Church operates in Australia and France. Through the Dreambuilders Network, the churches partner with a number of renowned humanitarian agencies around the world, providing financial support.
In 2003, Dreambuilders Church began a partnership with Awareness Cambodia. Over the years hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated to our humanitarian efforts in Cambodia. Their generosity has helped us build Graduation House, and supported our range of education programs.
With Dreambuilders’ help we are educating and empowering children to realise their dreams.
Tim Pursell Cambodia Scholarship Fund
Awareness Cambodia entered into a partnership with the Tim Purcell Cambodia Scholarship Fund in 2013.
The scholarship’s purpose is ‘supporting poverty alleviation in Cambodia by enabling students from underprivileged backgrounds to complete agriculture-related studies; in doing this, these students develop the capacity to effectively contribute to programs, projects and services that can enhance agricultural productivity and rural development and welfare in the country’.
The scholarship works alongside the Graduation House program, which is enjoying very pleasing results. This program opens university education to poor students from rural backgrounds who would otherwise have no opportunity to study at a tertiary level.
Awareness Cambodia signed a MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with Cho Ray Hospital, Phnom Penh on the 3rd March 2016.
Cho Ray Hospital are now partnering with Awareness Cambodia and will offer healthcare to our staff and children at a substantial discount.
