Cambodia

  • Siemens Energy offices in Thailand and Cambodia joined hands with Electricité du Cambodge (EDC) to provide food assistance to 1,600 families flood-affected households in Kroko district, Pursat Province.
  • Delivery to the recipients was successfully carried out in adherence to strict SOP measures.
  • This year’s flooding is the worst in over 20 years that has impacted the people’s livelihoods.

 

The recent severe flooding in Cambodia has taken a toll on the many populations living in various provinces inundated by heavy rainfall and typhoon that started since early October. In light of this natural disaster, Siemens Energy Thailand and Siemens Energy Representative Office Cambodia collaborated with Electricité du Cambodge (EDC) to provide food relief to 1,600 affected families in Kroko district, Pursat Province. 

The delivery and handover to recipients was successfully carried out at 2 Pagodas, namely Samdech Yuos Pagoda for 780 families and Toul Sophy Pagoda for 820 families, thanks to the well-organized efforts of all parties involved including the management and staff of Electricité du Cambodge (EDC) and local authorities on 28 November 2020. Each family received 10kg of rice pack, 20 packs of instant noodles, and 10 cans of canned fish.

This flooding is regarded to be the worst in 20 years that has greatly affected the livelihoods of many, as homes were devastated and vast tracts of agricultural land damaged. For Siemens Energy Thailand and Cambodia, it is hoped that this purposeful donation campaign will provide some form of immediate aid and comfort to many of these victims, while the households look to receiving other food assistance and early recovery support.
