Life in Limbo at Andoung

I saw the pictures and read the condition of the 1,600 families at Andoung Village

("Life in Limbo," Post, Nov 17, 2006), and was reminded of the Khmer Rouge

era and the situation at the Thai-Cambodian border in the 1970s.

But can anybody believe that after more than two decades of relative peace and the

receipt of billions of dollars in aid from generous rich countries, this situation

can still exist in Cambodia?

For those leaders who have everything men can have, I wonder how they can sleep well

while their own people, brothers and sisters, living and sleeping next door, have

nothing. They go to the pagoda and light candles and incense, or to the church to

praise the Lord. For what? Oh Lord!

Please cash my $100 check and give the money to human rights defender Keal Chan Sarn.

I admire her courage, determination and nonviolent approach to problems.
