Children’s Hope in Cambodia


Children’s Hope in Cambodia is a non-government organisation formed by Morris Chun. Morris did Mr Washer’s bathroom waterproofing for many years until he passed the business on to his son, William, in 2009. Morris now devotes his time to charity work and Mr Washer proudly supports him. Morris buys bulk clothes, stationery and medical supplies with our donations and delivers them personally to villages in need.

This year Mr Washer helped Children’s Hope in Cambodia to build toilet rooms and water pumps in Chan Trei, in the province of Svay Rieng, which is a village complex of around 10,000 people. We wish Morris the very best for all his future goodwill projects and look forward to helping in the future.

Charities We Support

wheelchairs logoWe are proud to contribute to the invaluable work of Wheelchairs For Kids. Since their inception in 1998, this team of generous volunteers have produced and donated some 21,000 wheelchairs to disabled children in under-resourced countries. These children are often the victims of mines, disease or birth defects and a suitably fitted wheelchair can make all the difference in their lives.
amnestyAmnesty International is a global movement fighting to protect and defend the human rights of every individual world-wide. Their work includes helping displaced refugees, fighting to prevent violence against women and campaigning for an end to the death penalty. Mr Washer’s staff have been passionate supporters of Amnesty International for over a decade. Read about Amnesty’s success stories at www.amnesty.org.au.
shitbox rally logoShitbox Rally is an annual event which raises funds for cancer research. Teams collect sponsors and then make the 3000km drive from Melbourne to Cairns in a car valued at $1000 or less, (ie. a shitbox.) The event is a lot of fun and it raises money for a great cause.

UNHCRAustralia for UNHCR is an Australian charity that raises funds to support the work of the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR. Their aim is to help Australians change the lives of refugees and displaced people around the world. The team at Mr Washer were particularly impressed with UNHCR’s response the 2010 Pakistan Floods. As the first agency to respond to the disaster, UNHCR provided life-saving assistance and protection to hundreds of thousands of people in need. Australia for UNHCR provided much needed funds to help ensure critical support was provided on the ground. See their website to learn about their current campaigns and how to help.
