How is DNA helping Cambodians?

DNA genetic testing might be someone’s only option to search for blood relatives, as a result of missing or inaccurate documents.  Currently DNA matches are few and offer up distant relationships of 3rd cousins and above, because there are so few Cambodians in all four databases. This is because testing in the mainstream is relatively new and in Cambodia, where the majority of searching families are, the test too expensive, if even known about. This is why our priority is to get free tests into Cambodia, with the wider aim to encourage anyone Khmer to take a test and join our DNACambodia Project.
