NOCC general secretary Vath Chamroeun and Royal Palace Minister adviser Chhey Chab handed over sport equipment, including 50 sports kits, footballs, football nets, volleyballs, volleyball nets and posts, basketballs and sports stopwatches, worth a total of $4,000.

During his address at the school, Vath Chamrouen said: “We decided to accept the request of support for the school, where there are 216 students and 11 teachers but only two sport coaches who are in real need of sports equipment.”
