Leading The Way Against The Pandemic
Prince Real Estate provides daily necessities to 804 impoverished families in Chamkarmon District affected by the community outbreak on February 20.
Prince Holding Group ("Prince Group"), one of Cambodia's largest and fastest growing conglomerates, and Chairman Neak Oknha Chen Zhi (Prince Chenzhi) have responded to the Cambodian Government's call for assistance in combating the February 20, 2021 Covid-19 outbreak in the Kingdom by announcing plans to donate US$3 million to anti-pandemic efforts in the Kingdom. This follows Chen Zhi's initial US$3 million donation in December to assist Cambodia in purchasing COVID-19 vaccines.
Additionally, following in the footsteps of Prince Group and Chen Zhi, Prince Real Estate, a subsidiary of Prince Group, distributed critical food supplies to 804 families in need and 234 members of the Cambodian police force in Chamkarmon District, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, which was impacted by the February 20, 2021 Covid-19 outbreak.

While the Cambodian government has provided unprecedented assistance totaling $1.16 billion, accounting for 5% of GDP thus far, Prince Group recognises that private enterprises must also play a critical role in post-pandemic recovery.
The latest donation is part of Prince Group's comprehensive environment, social, and governance (ESG) strategy for member companies. Chen Zhi's donation of US$3 million is a critical component of this strategy, assisting the Cambodian government in reaching its target of vaccinating at least 80% of the population, or nearly 13 million people, reiterating the Group's commitment to social responsibilities in Cambodia. Additionally, Prince Real Estate donated 16,080 kilogrammes of rice, 804 boxes of noodles, 804 cartons of fish sauce, and 804 cartons of soy sauce to households, as well as 500 cartons of purified water and 200 cartons of soft drinks to 234 police officers who have been working tirelessly in 33 locations throughout Chamkarmon District, an area that has been severely impacted by a Covid-19 outbreak.
“As a Group striving to improve the lives of local communities in Cambodia, it is our civic duty to partner with District Governor Theng So Thol and the Chamkarmon District Government. The community outbreak has affected the lives of many people in the district, and we believe that prompt and decisive action will make a key difference in ensuring a robust recovery for communities,” said Mr. Steven Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Prince Real Estate.
This is just one of several initiatives that Prince Group has organised in an efficient and expedited manner over the last two years.
Last month, Prince Charitable Foundation, the charitable arm of Prince Group, distributed care packages to 500 families in Ong village in Cambodia's Prey Nob district. Ong village is located near the site of the US$16 billion, 843-hectare Ream City project, which is being developed on reclaimed land near Sihanoukville International Airport. While the Ream City project is set to transform the region, Prince Group has consulted with local leaders to ascertain their communities' future needs.
Prince Group will continue to assist Cambodians by delivering critical materials to those in need, implementing critical community initiatives, and collaborating with socially responsible partners throughout the Kingdom, all with the goal of empowering local communities.
