In 2017, there was one royal mobile prosthesis unit project operated by the Prostheses Foundation in collaboration with Singha Asia Holding Pte Ltd. It was the 139th royal mobile prosthesis service unit, which took place in Phnom Penh, Cambodia from 2nd January 2017 to 7th January 2017. The objective was to provide underprivileged amputees in Phnom Penh and nearby cities with free of charge prosthetic legs so that they could have better life quality and would not become a burden to their family and the society.
