From 1970 to 1979, Khmer Rouge, the Communist Part of Kampuchea in Cambodia led by Pol Pot, ruled over Siem Reap. Pol Pot's troops caused a labor struggle in the country side.
Almost 3,000,000 people were killed during this period, which is about a quarter of the total population in Cambodia.
Starting from 7th January 1979, the Vietnamese and Cambodian troops helped people who had lived through Pol Pot's regime.
This political conflict caused many to live in poverty, most of these being homeless children. Toun Community Center was founded in 2007 to help these vulnerable children.
Our center changed its name several times. In 2007, it was called PACODC. In 2014, it was changed to PACDOC CTS. Since 2016, the center changed its name to the current name, Toun Community Center (TCC).
