"Friends" has a friend

The Rotary Club of Phnom Penh donated $10,000 to Mith Samlanh/Friends Dec 15, as

part of a Child Opportunity Grant from the Rotary Foundation of Rotary

International.

Sebastian Marot, Coordinator of Friends, said the money

was part of desperately needed funds for the project, which works with street

children in Phnom Penh and the provinces.

"We needed the money really

badly - in fact, we started spending it before we got it," said Marot. He added

that the money will go towards the purchase of training tools for a welding

class, a car, beds and clothes.

Robert C Scott, President of the Phnom

Penh Rotary Club, said in his handover speech that the club had followed the

progress of Mith Samlanh/Friends since 1996, and that he knew the money would go

"to good use".
