Solinn Lim joins Oxfam in Cambodia as our Country Director on 25 April 2016. She replaces Chris Eijkemans who has moved to take up Oxfam’s Country Director post for the Occupied Palestinian Territory and Israel.
Before joining us in Phnom Penh, Solinn was in Boston, USA as Deputy Regional Director for Asia. She brings a wealth of 17 years of hands-on experience in countries across Asia in areas of community development, environmental conservation and climate change, humanitarian relief and preparedness, civic engagement and governance, and policy and campaign. She holds a BA in Sociology and a MSc. in Environmental Policy from Oxford University.
As a Cambodian, born and raised through war time, stringent poverty and patriarchal society of Cambodia, Solinn told staff that she is thrilled to take on this role for 2 reasons: "on a personal level, I can give back to Cambodia through a more impactful one Oxfam; and on professional level, I have a privilege of a life time to work alongside all of you, who are smart, competent and hardworking, who share my belief in one Oxfam and its mission."
