A Non-Profit-Charitable Organization
IRS TAX FORM SAM RELIEF
On October 9th, 1998 my beloved mother passed away. She left me some money for charitable purposes for poor people in Cambodia. My mom, Sambath Tep, was an angel who liked to donate to the temple and poor families in Cambodia.
In 1999, I used her money, along with some other private donations, to help over 300 families and 300 students in Mom's home town, Wat Tmor Kor, Khet Kan Dal. We built a small school for monks and students.
I returned in August 2000 to the same town and assisted 330 families and 330 students by giving them rice, school supplies, medicine (Tylenol), reading glasses and money.
From this experience I created my own foundation called Sam Relief, Inc.
We run a small charity and I am proud to introduce my staff:
