Prince Sisowath Phandaravong

We announce with great sadness that Prince Neak Ang Rajavong Sisowath Phandaravong, the longest serving member of the Rotary Club of Phnom Penh, passed away on Thursday, 1st July 2021. He was for many years an Honorary member of our club.
The Prince was born in 1932 and raised in Cambodia, though his education was undertaken both in Phnom Penh and overseas. A fluent speaker of European languages, including French and German, Prince Sisowath held many high offices on behalf of his country which included being Ambassador to Brunei and West Germany. However it is his time on The Constitutional Council of the Kingdom of Cambodia that he always spoke of most fondly.
He married Margot Heydermann a German national in 1959 and they had four children; three girls and a boy who he always spoke of with great pride and affection.
A member of the Rotary Club of Phnom Penh from the 1960s the Prince played a key role in the renaissance of the Phnom Penh Rotary Club in the mid – 1990s following the return of peace to Cambodia.
Prince Sisowath Phandaravong was above all else a most generous and kind Rotarian with a good heart who instinctively knew that Rotary, with its twin mottoes of Service Above Self and One Profits Most Who Serves Best, was an organisation he was proud to belong to and promote.
In the last few years the Prince had not enjoyed good health and was unable to get out and about. This was frustrating for him as he loved to attend functions and meet with friends old and new.
Prince Sisowath Phandaravong will be mourned by his family and close friends and sadly missed by all who had the good fortune to meet with him and spend just a little time talking about his work, his family and his country.
The Rotary Club of Phnom Penh gives thanks for all he contributed and sends its condolences to his family. May he rest in peace.

URGENT COVID APPEAL.

Cambodia has been struggling with the economic impact of Covid so the Rotary Club of Phnom Penh developed an Emergency Food Distribution project (EFD) to help support struggling communities. Below is an update on this project’s achievements and we thank those generous donors who have supported this project.
But now Cambodia is in the grip of a widespread Covid disaster which has recently escalated. The country is in lockdown, there are curfews at night, many markets & shops are closed, food prices are rising, factories are closing, the hospitals and medical facilities are swamped and the number of people testing positive is rising alarmingly. Due to restrictions on movement many people are unable to work and are struggling to get enough food. Please consider supporting our EFD project as the Khmer people are desperate for support and the situation is only getting worse daily. RCPP will ensure that support gets through to those who most need it. Thank you.
