Marcel Roy Foundation for Poor Children
Marcel Roy, a French Canadian was a great humanist who spent most of his life working and helping poor students and orphans in S-E Asia. In Cambodia, Marcel Roy had devoted his life to work in Cambodian refugee camps in the 1980’s & 1990’s. Many Cambodians and orphans were rescued and brought up with a bright future by this noble man. In 1995, Marcel Roy was diagnosed with a terminal cancer and passed away in late 1999. Because of his benevolence and great achievements, a group of people, including Mrs. Chhim Nearypov, currently the Chairwoman of the Foundation Board, Dr. Philippe, a long time friend of Marcel Roy, and others continue to uphold the humanitarian and community works that were bequeathed by Marcel Roy.
