Current Metfone C-League leaders Phnom Penh Penh Crown FC are teaming up with World Vision’s Child Health Now campaign to address child malnutrition in Cambodia.

According to World Vision statistics, up to 40 per cent of Cambodian children are chronically malnourished. “World Vision and PCFC want to see that Cambodian children are healthy and energetic, giving them a sporting change for their future.

Together we are calling for government to take action to address this urgent issue through increasing funding, and providing better coordination and leadership, and for the general public to understand about the importance of child nutrition,” a statement from Crown read yesterday, urging people to share a YouTube video featuring messages from some of their star players.
