Phnom Penh, February 12th, 2018Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading on-demand transportation and mobile payments platform, today announced a donation campaign in partnership with the Kantha Bopha Children’s Hospitals. From 12 February to 16 April, Grab will donate US$1 from every ride taken with promo code KANTHA to the Kantha Bopha Foundation.

Sun Chanthol, Senior Minister & Minister of Public Works & Transport and Dr. Denis Laurent, Deputy Director of Kantha Bopha Hospital.

“Grab’s mission is to improve lives through our technology platform.” said Mr. Wee Tang Yee, Country Head of Grab Cambodia. “As a locally-incorporated company, we are committed to supporting the long-term growth of the country and uplift livelihood of the Cambodian people. We believe in working together with local partners and stakeholders to drive positive change in their home countries, and across ASEAN. Kantha Bopha Children’s Hospitals is globally renowned for its dedication to help children in need. We are glad to be able to support the Hospitals’ noble mission through our donation campaign.”

Dr. Denis Laurent, Deputy Director of Kantha Bopha Hospitals said, “Every year a million children pass through our gates requiring medical attention. With support from partners like Grab, we are able to continue providing free medical treatment for children whose parents cannot afford it. We are heartened by Grab’s support and the company’s mission to improve lives of our people.”

Presiding over Grab’s announcement of support at the Hospital, H.E. Sun Chanthol, Senior Minister & Minister of Public Works & Transport said: “The Ministry of Public Works & Transport fully appreciates Grab as the first ride hailing firm in Cambodia to ascertain their commitment as a responsible corporate citizen in supporting the Kantha Bopha Hospitals.
