JHK Legal actively participates in many community endeavours and is proud to support to a number of local and national charitable organisations. JHK encourages volunteering and staff regularly give their time to several worthy pro bono initiatives with the largest currently being Sunshine Cambodia.

Sunshine Cambodia is a social enterprise that assists in the provision of charitable relief in Cambodia including housing to regional and rural communities. The section of the organisation supported by JHK Legal carries out the construction of robust, sustainable, low-cost and transportable housing in order to provide homes for the impoverished who lack the means to provide for themselves.

JHK Legal supported this worthy charity by providing legal assistance without charge in its infancy as Global Village Housing and now that charity has become part of Sunshine Cambodia we are providing practical assistance by providing the funding annually for the construction of 2 dwellings and sending 2 JHK Legal staff members to Cambodia to assist with the construction of those dwellings.
