PHNOM PENH, April 29, 2024 — More than 5,000 individuals from the districts of Koh Thom, Leuk Dek, and Sampov Poun in Kandal Province received free eye examinations and glasses on Sunday, thanks to a team of volunteer doctors led by Hun Many. The medical outreach, held at Hun Sen High School in Koh Thom District, is part of ongoing efforts to improve health services in rural areas.

The event was attended by several key figures including Peng Pothina, Minister of Public Works and Transport; Kong Sophoan, Governor of Kandal Province; and Leang Phally, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Planning. Kong Sophoan expressed appreciation for the support provided by the Royal Government's representatives, who facilitated the essential financial and material resources needed for the initiative.

Pothina highlighted the medical examinations and treatments as a critical contribution to the government's mission to enhance public health services and set a positive example for future generations. He emphasized that such efforts are crucial for national development in health and align with the Royal Government of Cambodia's sustainable development goals, focusing on reducing poverty and improving living standards without discrimination based on race, religion, or political affiliation.

The beneficiaries of the free medical services expressed profound gratitude for the opportunity, which not only alleviated their health concerns but also underscored the effective collaboration between the provincial and municipal administrations to make such events possible.
