Alia Eyres is the Chief Executive of Mother’s Choice, a local non-profit organisation with the vision to see no girl or baby left alone in Hong Kong.

Determined to make a difference, the mother-of-two left her legal career and joined Mother’s Choice as the CEO in 2012. Today Alia is passionate about joining hands with the community to transform lives and bring hope to vulnerable babies and girls.
