Maria is a doctor of Chinese medicine and has completed Asian studies in London and China.
While living and working in Asia she and her husband adopted a young girl from a Khmer orphanage. Back home in Australia she and her family are very aware of the privilege that free education, healthcare and other supports offers our children.
Maria wants to offer some of her good fortune to her adopted child’s Khmer peers.
She is inspired by what LOA offers its scholarship girls and is moved by the donors who give so generously and graciously.
