Record US donation funds school facilities

Us ambassador William Todd and Minister of Education Im Sethy earlier this week unveiled newly constructed facilities funded by the US government at Preah Ang Duong High School in Prey Veng town.

The $700,000 spent on new classrooms, bathrooms, kitchen facilities, a water well and sports facilities at the school represents the largest-ever US humanitarian donation to Cambodia, according to a statement released by the embassy. USAID had originally built the school in the 1950s, but it was badly damaged during the civil war, the statement said.
