Siem Reap, 9 November 2018 – In line with its commitment to help improve the livelihood of vulnerable communities in Asia, Prudence Foundation, together with Prudential Cambodia, join forces with Habitat for Humanity Cambodia to build six new homes and refurbish a school in Banteay Sri District, Siem Reap province in Cambodia this week. Around 80 employee volunteers from across Prudential Corporation Asia’s (PCA) 14 markets in the region have participated in the programme.

The one-week programme, from 4 to 10 November, takes place at the remote Run Village, 40km away from the Siem Reap city centre. 

Marc Fancy, Executive Director of Prudence Foundation, the community investment arm of PCA, said the Foundation’s mission was to invest in communities across Asia in impactful and meaningful ways.

“Prudential is committed to providing protection and security to families across Asia. Decent housing and quality education are fundamental to human development, so we are delighted to be partnering with Habitat for Humanity to help provide shelter and educational infrastructure to the Run Village community in Siem Reap province,” Mr. Fancy said.

“This is the first time we have organised the PRUVolunteer programme in Cambodia, which is fantastic. Building houses is a great way to help families who need it. Through volunteering, we are making a difference to an individual, a family or a community, and that is truly gratifying,” Mr. Fancy added.

Phal Winner, an employee volunteer from Prudential Cambodia, said he is proud to join the programme.

“I felt honored to have joint the Regional PRUVolunteer Programme. It was such an amazing experience. I not only contributed to the community by building houses for less privileged Cambodians, but also made new friends with kind-hearted Prudential Corporation staff members from different countries in Asia,” said Winner.

Oum Phoeun, Country’ Representative for Habitat for Humanity Cambodia, said, “In line with our vision of helping promote people’s well-beings, the PRUVolunteer programme makes a significant difference in the community in Siem Reap as volunteers help enhance living conditions through building houses supported by Habitat for Humanity Cambodia.”

This volunteer initiative is part of the Prudence Foundation’s Regional PRUVolunteer Programme. Since its inception in 2012, the Regional PRUVolunteer Programme has helped provide sustainable and long-term assistance for communities across Asia where the company operates.

Through the Regional PRUVolunteer Programme, hundreds of volunteers from Prudential helped build homes for those affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan in 2011. Between 2014 and 2017, following destructive storms and flooding in Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Philippines, the programme also helped rebuild schools, homes and fishing boats for victims of these natural disasters.

Since establishing its business in early 2013, Prudential Cambodia, in partnership with Prudence Foundation, has invested heavily in community initiatives focused on road safety, natural disaster preparedness, financial literacy, early childhood education and many other programmes.
