Stand with the women of Cambodia and Celebrate International Women's Day!

LUSH North America is throwing major support behind the Nokor Tep Women's Hospital! On March 8th, International Women's Day, the company will launch a special appeal to customers to join the One-in-a-Million fundraising campaign and help us complete construction.

MANY THANKS to LUSH CEO Karen Wolverton and the entire LUSH team for their amazing and heartfelt support.


Tabitha Celebrates 20 Years of Success!

Who would believe that one woman with a vision could improve the lot of more than 3.7 million Cambodian people in 20 years? Well, believe it! Janne Ritskes and her 50 staff continue to help and work tirelessly with the poorest families living in Cambodia today. And it is all thanks to Tabitha's supporters from all around the world—people like you and me—who make this possible through our fundraisers and donations.

So this year, in keeping with Tabitha's 20th Anniversary, Janne is asking 20,000 people to make a donation of $20. Because that's what it takes to support one family for a year in the Savings Program - to pay 10% interest on the savings of each family.

Please CLICK HERE to make your donation, and do so with our deepest gratitude.

Latest Update from Cambodia

January, 2015
Happy – it is one of those overused words that I actually dislike but yesterday I saw true happiness! Yesterday was senior citizen’s day in Tabitha. Being a senior means anyone who can survive past the age of 60.
