The donations – part of the financial institutions’ CSR projects for this year – were given to girls residing at the AFESIP centre in Village 24, Prey Sar commune, in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district.
Two tonnes of rice, 200 boxes of instant noodles, 200 boxes of canned fish, 50kg of sugar, 50kg of salt, 50 bottles of cooking oil, 50 boxes of soy sauce and 50 boxes of fish sauce were handed out at a special ceremony.

Each of the 140 girls in the organisation’s care received five books, five pens, five pencils, an eraser, a set of geometry rulers, a bag and a NongHyup Finance water bottle.
