Cambodia’s leading mobile operator Metfone on Thursday kicked off a special Pchum Ben celebration plan with a difference – special gifts for Metfone customers every time they scan the QR code and make a donation to the Kantha Bopha Hospital.

During the festival campaign – from September 30 to October 31 – Metfone and eMoney subscribers are each given one scan free in the CamID/eMoney app (eMoney subscribers will be given one free scan in eMoney and one free scan in CamID).


For every top-up of at least 5,000 riel (around $1.25) via scratch card or digital top-up (eMoney, e-wallet or bank account), subscribers will be given one free scan. In addition, one free scan will be given to new subscribers who register an eMoney account and have the first transaction charged with a fee.

Special prizes include a one damlung (37.4g) gold necklace, iPhone 12 pro, laptops, iPads and Apple watches. Metfone subscribers will also stand the chance to win prizes in the form of PIN code cards for mobile phones as well as data for internet usage worth thousands of dollars.

Most importantly, the prizes are 100 per cent guaranteed every time a customer scans the QR code.

Subscribers who win the prizes by scanning the QR code are entitled to share the CamID/eMoney prizes to friends or family members as Pchum Ben gifts to celebrate the festival. Other terms and conditions will be applied to the “Pchum Ben Gifts for Everyone” programme.

Business associated with social responsibility

In addition to this gift programme, Metfone will also donate funds raised from the scanned QR transactions – five cents per scan – to the Kantha Bopha Hospital during the Pchum Ben Gifts programme.


Metfone, which has been operating in Cambodia for more than a decade, has emerged as a leading mobile network operator with the most extensive coverage across the Kingdom.

Metfone conducts its business with a high sense of social responsibility, striving to give back to the society in which it operates. Several corporate social responsibility activities have been implemented such as the humanity charity programme called “It’s Not a Dream”; the Metfone Cambodian Leagues providing internet to schools; donations to the Cambodian Red Cross; and providing funds to tackle Covid-19.
