Phnom Penh, 30 March 2018 – There is a reason children love to draw and colour: it is fun; it is creative; and they can show off the results to their parents. Based on a variety of research on colour psychology[1], simple colouring activities can yield a range of benefits to children’s health and their social skills; such as increased fine motor skills, memory, focus and confidence. In addition, having their parents’ company and recognition brings tremendous psychological benefits.

Understanding such positive impacts, Cambodian Public Bank Plc (“Campu Bank”) and AIA (Cambodia) Life Insurance Plc (“AIA Cambodia”) have jointly launched the Junior Art Talent Campaign, aimed at offering children of the bank’s customers an opportunity to show their artistic talent.

The campaign runs until 30 April 2018. Participating families stand a chance to win generous prizes including trips to Sunway Lagoon in Malaysia, and exclusive kid football training session run by professional coaches from AIA’s partner, Tottenham Hotspur, a leading football club in the English Premier League.

The Regional Head of Indo-China Operations, Datuk Phan Ying Tong, stated: “We are happy to work closely with our partner AIA Cambodia to organise the Junior Art Talent Campaign. It serves as a platform and stimuli where we can enrich the family values.”

Echoing the excitement, Mr. Richard Bates, Chief Executive Officer of AIA Cambodia, said: “AIA is thrilled to bring the Junior Art Talent Campaign to Campu Bank’s customers and to help bring a range of health benefits and fun family activities to participants.”

All Campu Bank customers can join the campaign before 30 April, simply by visiting their nearest Campu Bank branch. For more information, Campu Bank’s Customer Service Centre can be contacted via 023 428 100 and AIA Client Care at 086 999 AIA.
