Cambodian Red Cross announced Friday that it had received US$4 million
from Cambodian and international donors to fund its 2009 operations.
Speaking at the 146th anniversary celebration at the Red Cross head
office in Phnom Penh, first lady Bun Rany said the Red Cross theme for
2009 - "Our world, our action" - underscored the need for all
Cambodians to work together in response to resource shortages and other
problems. She commended donors for allocating part of their budgets to
help Cambodia develop.
