The sum was approved by the Council of Ministers on Friday, according to Information Minister Khieu Kanharith.

"This is our small, heartfelt contribution to join with Americans in offering condolences to those killed in the Katrina disaster," Khieu said.

^ It shows how generous and thoughtful Cambodia is. It's easier to give bread to yourself than to someone else.

They should use those money for their own country. Moreover $20000 cant help anything. Maybe enough to buy a standard car in the State.

Cambodia should help the world by helping itself out, instead of relying on foreign aid so much. Still, a nice gesture.

I find it ironic that a corrupt government who pocketed foreign aid is giving it away back to its donor country. But all in all, it was an act of kindness.

Sometimes, its not so hard to understand the world politics.
If anybody actually thought that prime minister Hun Sen contributed those wast money, you're surely needed to rethink again. In case, if the money was contribute into the victims of New Orlean, I am quite sure that it would passed indirectly or to somewhere else.

$20,000 could off built few schools, small infrastructure, and probably a few jobs for rural or remote areas. However, as I said before, its a world of politics. The voice people cries out for helps, the politcians ignores them.

It could be his lies intention, because I have heard he and his colleagues recently travelling to New York and Paris to debate about consparicy developing and reforming of Cambodia.

Poor Cambodians inadequated in terms of......... I means everythings.
Forget the world, focuses more on our issues.

They didn't. They were the ones that let the genocide continue.

I meant if all countries adopted the "take care of ourselves before taking care of others" no one would ever give to others, since there will always be a poor family out there.

I like the look of our principle, however do you actually think the concepts make sense to us?
