The Phnom Penh Post – September 05, 2008

Written by Vong Sokheng

Forty-seven employees of Kookmin Bank, the largest South Korean bank in Cambodia, have donated US$22,000 to restore and build houses in Phnom Krom slum communities in Siem Reap province. Kang Chung Won, chief executive officer of Kookmin Bank, told the Post by email that the donated money has been used to build four new houses and to restore three others. In addition, the donation has been used to provide a free meal to around 2,400 children from the Phnom Krom slum area, said Kang. “Bread was also given to around 1,000 children.” Kang said that Kookmin Bank’s employees made a field investigation for the project in October 2007 and they have chosen to donate a bit of money to the project every payday. “Korea experienced poor economic conditions, too. We like giving a hand to Cambodia and developing together,” Kang said.
