A “Children’s Statement” consisting of concerns and recommendations from Cambodian children was read and delivered to a senior government representative during the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the UNCRC.

"Nutrition is micronutrients that we eat every day and are needed for children to be clever, and have good health," said Ms Pech Sima, Director of Maternal and Child Health.
According to the Deputy Prime Minister Yim Chhayly, "Childhood malnutrition remains a challenge for Cambodia that demands more attention and collaboration from relevant stakeholders..."
