Anti-trafficking funds

The United States will contribute an extra $5.6 million to anti-human

trafficking projects in Cambodia, as part of President George W Bush's $50

million commitment to combat the global trade in people.

The extra funds

will be administered by USAid which expects the money to start arriving before

July, said Heide Bronke, spokesperson for the US Embassy, on May

20.

USAid currently supports 11 trafficking prevention and victim help

projects and has an annual budget for 2004 of $2.05 million.

The

worldwide fight against human trafficking has been made a priority by the Bush

administration as the US heads into a general election in November.
