You can inform the Wing agent that you would like to donate to the Kantha Bopha foundation, with the biller code 5559 (in KH Riels) or 5558 (in US Dollar). Whether it is 2,000 riels or 1USD, we will always accept your contribution,” said Neak Okhna Kith Meng, adding that donors can also opt for donating money by logging into the Wing Money App and selecting “Bills Payment” or via USSD code *989# and the donation can be done within seconds.
