The event was held at DKSH’s main office in Phnom Penh in the presence of Dr. Sok Po, Director of the National Blood Transfusion Center, the DKSH Cambodia management team, and around 100 participants, including business partners, employees, and members of the general public.

DKSH has been active in Asia for more than 150 years, and a strong commitment to local communities has always been an integral part of its business. In Cambodia, DKSH has been present since the beginning of the 1950s. Today, it is one of the leading Market Expansion Services providers in the country. Participating in blood donation campaigns is in line with DKSH’s purpose of enriching people’s lives and its social responsibility, as it is a way of deeply caring for people and supporting them in overcoming health problems.
