After the coronation of His Majesty King Norodom Sihanouk in 1993, an office was

established to serve as a vehicle for providing aid and assistance to the Kingdom's

neediest citizens.

Called the "Samdech Euv Team", the group now comprises over 50 staff members

who undertake a variety of activities throughout the Kingdom to benefit the poor,

assist the handicapped, enhance the skills of farmers, and support orphans and children.

The Samdech Euv Team receives support from the national budget and from donations

made by Cambodian charities, foreign governments, individuals and friends of Cambodia

overseas.

Projects are defined on a needs basis and in recent years more than 400 separate

activities have been undertaken nationwide.

The Team maintains its own equipment including 4 bulldozers, 60 tillers, 4 excavators,

a well-digger and over 300 water pumps.

Assistance is targeted at the poorest of the poor. In recent years, irrigation ditches

have been dug, schools have been built, health clinics constructed, and clean drinking

water provided through the installation of new wells.

Those wishing to assist His Majesty the King and Her Majesty the Queen with these

worthwhile activities can contact the Palace for further information on how to help

out.
