Uy Kuyteav, a Cambodian restaurant in Boeung Keng Kang 1 commune, joined with United for Cambodian Children to hold a charity dinner with the distinguished patronage of His Royal Highness Norodom Ravichak on September 25. The event was meant to raise funds for children who live in poor areas near Boeung Trabek in Phnom Penh. Kattia Huy, president of United for Cambodian Children, had a childhood similar to those of the children her organisation seeks to help. After overcoming the abominable living conditions imposed during the Khmer Rouge regime, she managed to flee to Vietnam and then to Europe. There, she had to relearn freedom, happiness and forgiveness. After years of reconstruction, today more than ever, Kattia wants to help the children of her country through the NGO by providing them with access to education and an environment in which they can build a decent future. “Education is for children what water is for a plant,” she said. Uy Kuyteav chef Luu Meng and his team created a speical menu for guests attending the charity event. Photos supplied
