The Singapore Embassy on Saturday organised a special event for students from the Cambodian Children’s Fund (CCF), as a part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.

Some 100 of them, between the age of 13 to 18, were invited to the WB Arena for special activities such as mural painting with artists Fonki and Yip Yew Chong, and other interactive games.

Singapore (Cambodia) International Academy also took part by organising the egg drop challenge, while the Singapore Medical Center Cambodia conducted a hygiene awareness session.

This event is also a part of the Street Art Festival++ — a unique celebration of diplomatic ties between Singapore and Cambodia currently taking place until Feb 29, where CCF has been selected as the main beneficiary.

Main sponsors such as Monument Books and Toys Cambodia was also in attendance to hand over $3,000 worth of books which were previously handpicked by CCF, while Ambassador Michael Tan presented donations in the form of school supplies, dictionaries and teddy bears.

“We appreciate all contributions, and we applaud Singapore’s efforts in trying to make Cambodia as the regional hub for arts. I’d love for this to continue for 10-15 more years,” CCF Founder Scott Neeson said.
