Crown Worldwide’s Chairman inaugurates the Hazel Joyce Library in Cambodia
February 29, 2012
Cambodia, February 29, 2012 - The Crown Worldwide Group, a worldwide leader of global mobility, relocation services, information management and fine arts and high value logistics recently dedicated the Hazel Joyce Library in Cambodia.
Crown Worldwide’s Founder and Chairman, Jim Thompson, inaugurated the Hazel Joyce Library in Cambodia in October 2011. The library, located in the remote Pursat Province in the Phnom Kravanh district, is the result of Jim's generous donation. The Hazel Joyce library is named after Jim’s sister who has done a great deal of charitable work in her life.
Nearly 3,000 people, including Jim’s sister and students from the adjacent Lech High School, attended the ceremony. In Jim’s speech at the dedication ceremony, he expressed his wish that people would take advantage of the opportunities the library offered, and through reading and learning, education could lift people out of poverty.
The library houses both English and Khmer books and also offers study areas with sets of tables and chairs. This philanthropic project represents Jim's belief that education is crucial for the growth of Cambodia. As Cambodia has not had much help over the years, he saw a chance to make a difference in people’s lives. The new library is Jim’s third philanthropic project in Cambodia.
Jim Thompson commented: “Giving away is one of the things that’s really rewarding. There are so many needs in the world, it’s overwhelming—but when you begin to focus, you can really do something of lasting value for people.”
