Our History in Cambodia

In 1990, Food for the Hungry (FH) began working in Cambodia by providing relief and aid to those living in refugee camps during the civil war. In 1992, they started to partner with poor communities in the Kampot Province to improve living conditions, and later expanded into northern Cambodia. Since then, FH has focused efforts on community development and other areas of need to improve living conditions.
