To say we have been busy at HHA this year would be a massive understatement. Our team has been growing, and everyone has been working extremely hard to make an impact on our community which will be felt for generations to come.
One task which has been consuming our time is updating our constitution to be fairer, stronger and more effective. As part of this change, we also have a new Khmer board, which is our governing board. These board members were hand picked by our management team, due to their professionalism, knowledge, skills, compassion and commitment to ensuring HHA’s sustainable future.
