On 1st June 2019 Hong Leong Bank gathered children from Cambodian Children's Fund which is a not-for-profit organization, founded in 2004 by Scott Neeson to aid orphaned children in Steung Meanchey, one of the poorest areas in Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh; initially established to support 45 children in need, CCF now educates over 2,000 children to grow and prosper
Hong Leong Bank, with the co-operation from Major Platinum Cineplex by Smart, provided 200 children a wonderful International Children’s Day watching the movie Pokomon Detective Pikachu in a dedecated hall just for the children. The CEO of Hong Leong Bank, Mr. Joe Farrugia stated that “We wanted these children to experience something that they have never had experienced before. We also wanted them to have an enjoyable occasion especially on this globally recognized event of International Children’s Day. Hong Leong Bank will aim to help the community in more aspects that we can into the future. We want to give back to the people and this is just a small start for now”.
Apart from the cinema experience, Hong Leong Bank has also made sure that the children did not leave the cinema empty-handed. Hong Leong Bank gave each child a branded gift bag of stationaries for their education purposes
