CASUNIK primarily aim is to help, guide and assist any Cambodian living or visiting the United Kingdom as well as any person related to Cambodia or Cambodians. Our aim is to provide information and resources to accommodate from personal to official level.
We strive to maintain, promote and introduce the Khmer Tradition and Culture. Our plan is to instigate and encourage the expansion of a Cultural exchange between Great Britain and Cambodia and help develop a bond and link between the two Kingdoms.
CASUNIK was founded by students, immigrants and diplomatic staff who were stranded by the events of the civil war as Pol Pot started Year Zero and cut off all international relationships in 1975. Since the re-instatement of the Royal Embassy of Cambodia, CASUNIK is enjoying a close working relationship and cooperation on a non-political basis.
CASUNIK informs, provides and operates its service under the Act of Charitable Organisation’s Constittution. REGISTERED UNDER THE CHARITY ACT 1960 No 292074
