The UP Rotaract Club, under the Rotary Club of Phnom Penh Central, is seeking support for their new project entitled “FOOD BANK PROJECT”. Having identified an unmet need in the community, the members of the Rotaract Club (all of them UP dental students) are building on a previous project which supplied basic items to street people (including rice, soy sauce, fish sauce, canned fish, disinfectant, and masks). Their Vision is to give back to the community while making connections with donors who share the same desire to help those in the greatest need.

Every two weeks at the weekend, the Rotaract students will visit places where homeless people are known to congregate, to deliver food, water, and other essential supplies. Locations will include areas such as Orussey Market, Kandal Market and Psa Jas Market, around Sokha Hotel, Koh Pich, in front of the Palace and Wat Botum Park. Each month about 20 people will receive food packages – adding up to around 200 people in total over the duration of the project. The mission will start in late September, and students will use their own transport to deliver the packages. UP Rotaract would like to encourage other students to join with them in this and other community projects, which they hope will have a positive impact on Cambodian society.
