WCWB CSR Siem Reap Cambodia 2020 Postponed Due to Coronavirus
Paris, 9th of March 2020 – World Chefs Without Borders (WCWB) would like to extend its sincere appreciation to the 105 Chefs from 32 countries currently registered as participants for WCWB CSR Siem Reap Cambodia 2020.
Due to the many unforeseen difficulties and global threat of the Coronavirus, WCWB CSR Siem Reap Cambodia has been postponed until October 20-24, 2020 and will launch on International Chefs Day!
WCWB Committee Chairman, Willment Leong, stated “The objective of the Chefs Social Responsibility (CSR) is to share our happiness, goodwill and what we have with others, however, the safety of our participating chefs and their families is our first priority. By postponing the tour, we may prevent being exposed to or carrying the virus during our travelling.”
President Thomas Gugler stated, “With my personal commitment as well as involvement and heartfelt pain, it’s a hard step but we don’t want to risk the health of our participating chefs and their families or the well-being of our hosts and those families we are going to Cambodia to help.” He further commented “We want to spread happiness and health all around the globe by involving as many nationalities as possible but due to the growing restrictions, which we are facing, it’s the wisest decision to wait for a more fortunate time.”
WCWB would like to extend its appreciation to everyone for their continued support and looks forward to meeting all the passionate chefs in Cambodia on October 20-24, 2020, when we can enjoy and spread our positive emotions, feelings and passion throughout Cambodia and the world.
Together, WCWB believes we can overcome any obstacles and perform what we believe to be, our Chefs Social Responsibility.
Willment Leong, WCWB Chairman
