Mr Hem Savath

Born in 1957, Mr Savath has lived through the Sangkum Reastr Niyum regime, the Khmer Republic, the Khmer Rouge regime and, today, the Kingdom of Cambodia. He describes the Khmer Rouge regime as the darkest period in his life: the countryside became a graveyard for nearly two million people, and he was separated from his parents for many years. Like so many others, Mr Savath had to drop out of school at a very young age.

After the fall of the Khmer Rouge, Mr Savath worked at the Ministry of Industry, Mining and Energy and then with the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC). Mr Savath joined the ILO in 1993, making him one of its longest serving employees. He is a skillful member of our team who applies himself diligently to his tasks: delivering packages and documents, picking up local and international guests, and recording all incoming and outgoing deliveries.

Mr Savath says that working at BFC has been such a positive experience. “I am happy to work at BFC as it is an organization that really respects its employees’ rights and treats them equally.” After his retirement, Mr Savath dreams of opening a car rental company.
