OCIC’s Olympia Medical Hub and Intercare Medical Center In Cooperation With Ministry Of Health and City Hall Launched Vaccination Campaign For Cambodian Youth

Overseas Cambodian Investment Corporation (OCIC) led Olympia Medical Hub and InterCare Medical Center set up a youth vaccination site with pilot vaccination activities commencing at Olympia City Mall Phase 2 assisted by its Dara Hotels in Phnom Penh City on Friday, August 6, 2021.

The continued collaboration with the government is aiming to boost Cambodia’s coronavirus vaccine drive by administering vaccines to youth aging from 12 to 17 years old every day for their first and second doses of Sinovac COVID vaccine. The group also converted its properties in Diamond Island, including Canadia International School (CIS), into vaccination sites serving approximately 30,000 adults their first and second covid vaccine doses. Through these efforts, OCIC also has completed the vaccination of over 80% of its employees, mostly in Phnom Penh. This is equivalent to over 15,000 Associates currently assigned in various office locations in the capital city.

Neak Oknha Dr. Pung Kheav Se, Chairman of Canadia Group and Overseas Cambodian Investment Corporation said, “We are committed to extending and maximizing our resources to help our country in its vaccination campaign which is very crucial in achieving not only herd immunity but also towards economic recovery. We believe that having a safer environment and accessible vaccination centers is not a privilege but a right of every Cambodian.”

Since the start of the global crisis, Neak Oknha Dr. Pung Kheav Se under its holding firm Canadia Group and OCIC has been at the forefront of Cambodia’s pandemic response donating over an 8.5million US dollars to the Royal Government of Cambodia led by Samdech Techo Hun Sen to purchase Covid-19 vaccines and provided its Wedding Halls in Koh Pich to be converted into a treatment center as a venue to treat Covid-19 patients. In addition to this, the Group also waived a significant level of rental for its retail partners and tenants whether it be large companies, SMEs, MSMEs, or start-ups, and supported various feeding programs, including 2 million US dollars for the provision of food to more than 5,000 families in urban poor areas.

Mr. Samnang Touch, OCIC’s Deputy CEO said, “OCIC is committed to continuing to play an active role in the Private Sector to support the Royal Government of Cambodia’s fight against the Covid-19 crisis, including joint projects with the Ministry of Health and City Hall  to realize the Country’s goal of saving more lives and mitigating the impact of the pandemic.”
