KAMPOT, April 10, 2024 — 400 residents of Dang Tong Commune in Dang Tong District, Kampot Province, were provided free medical services on May 9, 2024. This humanitarian effort was led by the Association of Humanitarian Mission of Deputy Prime Minister Say Sam Al, overseen by Sok Sopheak, Secretary of State of the Ministry of Commerce and Chairman of the Royal Government Working Group. The event took place under the auspices of the Bun Rany Hun Sen flags with the participation of Mao Thunin, Governor of the Kampot Provincial Board of Governors.

During the event, Sok Sopheak expressed gratitude for the guidance from Prime Minister Hun Manet on prioritizing local well-being. He highlighted the commitment to health care as a primary focus of the government's strategy, emphasizing the importance of making medical services accessible at no charge. The initiative reflects the Royal Government's dedication to enhancing public health and reducing healthcare-related expenses for the populace.

Mao Thunin, Governor of Kampot Province, remarked on the fortunate position of Cambodians living in peace and highlighted the leadership's focus on public welfare. He noted the significance of the medical outreach in Dang Tong District, which demonstrates care for residents' health and contributes to poverty reduction by alleviating medical expenses.

According to Yasadeth, Advisor to the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction and Chairman of the Volunteer Medical Team, the initiative is part of a broader series of free medical campaigns organized by the Humanitarian Mission Association from France.
