​​​Heart Mothers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization of over eighty women from across the world who write monthly letters and send care packages to a group of rescued child-victims of sex trafficking and exploitation in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Complying with strict privacy and security guidelines, we are unable to show any of the girls' faces. Our goal is to let each girl know there is a mother-figure somewhere who deeply loves and cares for them.​ Our mission is to be a part of the emotional support that these survivors need on their road to living full, productive lives of dignity.

About Heart Mothers


​Heart Mothers works hand-in-hand with AFESIP (the French acronym for Agir pour les Femmes en Situation Précaire, or Acting for Women in Distressing Situations). AFESIP combats sex trafficking, slavery, and exploitation of women and children in Cambodia by rescuing those in precarious situations, providing care and rehabilitation for those rescued, and if possible, reintegrating them into society. They provide counselling, healthcare, education, and vocational training to the girls so that they can live happy, healthy, dignified lives. Our main goals are to support this process by giving the girls a supportive figure to encourage her and love her unconditionally as well as fundraising to support the cost of the services provided to the girls at the AFESIP center.​​
