Welcome to LIFT issue 60

Now that Cambodia and Thailand have agreed to a ceasefire on the border area around Preah Vihear, the threat posed by Thailand has subsided, but for the past few weeks, there have been plenty of reasons to fear for the safety of Cambodian territory and people.

As often happens in times of trauma, people around the country united to rally behind the troops defending us. In this issue we find out how people supported the soldiers, and who made sure t5he money made it to the front lines (page 10).

We also talk to young writers searching for a new voice that will connect with the next generation of Cambodian readers (page 12). We find out what they re doing to compete with technology, TV and other distractions that their forbearers didn’t have to compete with.

The TEDx videos have been online for about a week, and our constructive Cambodian has some comments, and check out our ever evolving face3book page  at
