Govt gives $100,000 in quake aid to China

Cambodia on May 14 donated $100,000 in cash to China’s relief efforts following an earthquake that left more than 40,000 people dead or buried under rubble. “This $100,000 is not much, but it is a gesture to share the sadness and difficulties of the Chinese people who suffered from a terrible earthquake,” Foreign Minister Hor Namhong told reporters after giving the donation to Chinese ambassador Zhang Jin Feng. The ambassador said Cambodia’s former king Norodom Sihanouk had separately donated $50,000, while the Cambodian Red Cross gave $10,000 to help the victims. Cambodian on May 7 donated $50,000 to the Myanmar government to aid survivors of cyclone Nargis, which ravaged the fellow ASEAN member early this month, leaving upwards of 60,000 dead or missing.
