The Gliddon family have been living and working in Cambodia for over 9 years. In 2010, Paul and Katrina founded Mother's Heart, the first and only Crisis Pregnancy Service in Cambodia.
A small team of dedicated people researched abortion rates, unplanned pregnancies and found that women facing crisis pregnancies had no access to counselling or to choices. Many women and girls find themselves ostracized from their families and have no government assistance to help them through their crisis. Katrina and an amazing team of Khmer staff have worked hard to provide a Crisis Pregnancy counseling service for vulnerable single women and their families in Cambodia. 2017 will see the establishment of a second office strategically situated in the North West of Cambodia, so we can service many more girls and their families.
The Gliddon's goal was to be able to raise up a senior management team to run the day to day operations of Mother's Heart. This has meant Katrina is now released to focus on raising the profile of the work and fundraising to help with developing a strong support base in Australia; so the work can grow and be sustainable long term. The Gliddon's are residing in Melbourne where Katrina will continue her role full time as Founder, Fundraiser, Board member and Advisor.
Elijah is attending RMIT studying youth work and Autumn and Josiah are attending a local school. Paul continues his role as house hubby and support to Katrina. We are very excited about the future of Mother's Heart as it grows.
