The funds were raised during the Pchum Ben festival campaign where Metfone offered a programme for its customers to win special gifts every time they scan a QR code and make a donation to the Kantha Bopha Hospital. And for each QR scan, Metfone will give away $0.05, with the proceeds going to Kantha Bopha Hospital. The campaign was held from September 30 to October 31.

During the campaign, some 96,292 customers scanned their QR code and in return Metfone contributed $4,815, which will be channelled to the hospital.


Metfone Vice General Director Nhong Dinthan who handed over the money to the Kantha Bopha Hospital on November 23, said the donations were part of the company’s regular CSR activities to give back to the society.

“Kantha Bopha Hospital has saved a lot of Cambodian children and Metfone has always been happy to contribute to the hospital. We will continue to raise more funds for the hospital in our future activities,” said Dinthan.

Kuntha Bopha General Director Dr Denis Laurent thanked Metfone for constantly developing new programmes to raise funds to support the hospital.

“We will use these funds for helping improve the health of infants and children in Cambodia by supporting the activities of the Kantha Bopha Children's Hospital,” said Dr Laurent.

Metfone has been supporting the Cambodian government in implementing a community-oriented programme in building a better society. The company has so far worked closely with ministries and agencies to implement digital transformation projects in many fields including education, health and transportation.

Metfone actively contributes to the betterment of the society besides focusing on its business development to bring quality services to its customers across the Kingdom.
