Raising members’ awareness of the host country’s law and Khmer customs is a priority of the association, besides humanitarian activities such as offering free health check-ups and medicine, presenting gifts to disaster and Agent Orange victims and raising funds for the poor and families of ex-revolutionaries.

In the last tenure, the association raised more than 3.300 USD for disaster victims and those living in need, as well as calling on families to enroll their children in Vietnamese and Khmer language classes.
