MPs set up own NGO to help poor

A new NGO, the Cambodian Agency for National Development, has been set up by

National Assembly members to help the poor.

Its president, MP Ahmad

Yahya, said the NGO aimed to promote Cambodian economic, education and social

development through programs such as job creation and vocational skills

training.

"There are many NGOs helping Cambodian people, but this is

still inadequate," he said. "We Cambodians should show that we are willing to

help our people first." The NGO included representatives from the National

Assembly and Cambodian businesses. It hoped to reduce the gap between the pace

of economic development in Cambodia's cities and the provinces.
