The Main objective of Kampuchea Balopp program is to promote education and social inclusion through Sport. That’s why, before the games, we organized some activities with blind and low vision children which were mixed with other children to play together.Some mentally disabled children from Action Cambodge Handicap also joined us to played with other children and share a warm moment of fun together.
Then, differents rugby games were organized between the 34 teams regrouped in 4 differents age group categories: Under 11, U13, U15 and U18. A big thanks to our sponsor, Cambodia Airports without whom this great moment would not have been possible.
We would like to thanks as well all the volunteers from the Lycée Français René-Descartes who helped us to set up the field and animate the activities. Finally, we would like to thanks the players from Phnom Penh Social Rugby Club and Peou Sophoan who did a very nice job to referee all the games.
