Strategy and objective

The objective of the DNACambodia foundation is to facilitate, perform and manage DNA testing for Cambodians in and from Cambodia, to help them search for and be reunited with biological family from which they are separated. Every year, the DNACambodia foundation wants to generate so many resources that at least 1000 DNA results are included in the DNA project DNACambodia within the DNA database of FamilyTreeDNA.


Our mission is to provide DNA testing, assistance and education to Cambodians around the world to help reunite family members who have been separated and missing for decades due to war, genocide and poverty. We provide free test kits in Cambodia, help people outside of Cambodia buy test kits, and educate all Cambodians about the facts about DNA testing. We offer hope to divorced families, often across continents, to find their relatives. For each new test added to the project, there is hope that they could be the missing child, parent, or sibling of those who have already tested.


The DNACambodia Foundation is not for profit. All funds received, except for administrative and organizational costs, are fully used to achieve our objective.

The work of the DNACambodia foundation

The target group of the DNACambodia foundation are Cambodians, living in or outside Cambodia, who have lost a family member due to war, genocide and poverty.


Cambodians living within Cambodia can do a DNA test for free in Cambodia through the KFCO Cambodia foundation, registered in Cambodia. Cambodians living outside Cambodia can ask for help in making a choice for a DNA test. We offer information to everyone of Cambodian descent about how a DNA test works when looking for relatives. If someone of Cambodian descent reports to the foundation, a board member will contact them.


The Cambodian foundation KFCO Cambodia is financed by the DNACambodia foundation.
