Cambodia Retirement Village (CRV) is dedicated to improving the living conditions of elderly people and bringing generations together again in the village. We are a small group of individuals working with the villagers and rely on the generous support from our donors to help our senior citizens.

The objective of the project is to give support to the elderly people and provide accommodation, food, basic medical care, and serve as a role model to all people in the society to cultivate our sense of sharing and supporting. Following the motto ”Together in the Village”, the project also aims at bringing generations together again through sustainable community farming initiatives and educational resources for the children.

The generous donations and efforts of many people within Cambodia and abroad have made the Cambodia Retirement Village a reality. When Mr. Kim Vuthy set about to create the village, he faced doubts about the feasibility of the project but pursued his vision, convincing villages, friends and family one by one.

On June 18, 2011 the first retirement home was opened in Cham Bak Village, Chong Ampil Commune, Kagn Chhreach, Prey Veng Province, giving a new home to five villagers and with facilities for up to 24 residents. The opening ceremony was attended by Mr. Soy Soth, district chief, Mr. Pho Phal, commune chief, police chief, Ms. Jan Spiegelhaur, advisor and first donor to the Cambodia Retirement Village, and the complete team behind the Cambodia Retirement Village. some representatives from the companies which supported the project, HR Inc (Cambodia) Co., EUROTECH, APL logistic, individual donors from Phnom Penh, reporters from Khmer Apsara Magazine and Radio France International (RFI), as well as most people from the village.

About Cham Bak village

Cham Bak village is one of the remote villages in Prey Veng province located about 35 kilometers from the northern part of Prey Veng province. It is a poor village with around 1169 population with 225 households and 265 families.

The main job for villagers in this village is rice farming, which is done only once a year during the rainy season. No rice farming can be done during the dry season due to the lack of irrigation systems, so during that time there isn't much to do for the villagers. Therefore young men and women are leaving the village and moving to the citites to find work which will support their families. Some villagers have migrated to Thailand to work as fishermen and in the construction business.
