Dear Passionate Chefs,
World Chefs Without Borders (WCWB) would like to extend its sincere apologies that WCWB CSR Siem Reap, Cambodia previously rescheduled for October 20-24, 2020, must again be postponed due to the global pandemic and current international travel restrictions caused by COVID-19.
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 once again, we may prevent being exposed to or carrying the virus during our travelling.
After careful review with our WCWB Committee, Worldchefs President Thomas Gugler and the Cambodia Authorities, the new date has been set and confirmed for June 13-17, 2021.
A Message from Worldchefs President Thomas Gugler,
Here we are, a new date, same location for WCWB CSR Siem Reap, Cambodia where we can show the world that “The Power of the White Jacket” can make a change with the unified spirit “together, we are strong”. Hopefully, you can all be part of this mind-blowing humanitarian activity. See you soon in Siem Reap, Cambodia!
Thank you for the patience of those 105 Chefs from 32 countries previously registered as participants and those still wishing to join us. We look forward to seeing you in Siem Reap, Cambodia next year.
Stay Safe during this difficult time,
Willment Leong, Chairman
