Logo of Phnom Penh Post newspaper Phnom Penh Post - SONGS FOR POVERTY



F ilm star and singer Youthdara Chhany performs at Phnom Penh's Wat Botum park in a UN-sponsored concert to mark United Nations Day on October 23. United Nations Population Fund goodwill ambassador Chea Samnang was among the support singers. Preceded by a street march from Independence Monument, the concert was held to promote public awareness of the government's commitment to the millennium goal of eradicating poverty by 2015. The concert required construction of a special stage. It was broadcast live on TV, lasted two hours and attracted a crowd no bigger than regular nightly concerts held at the same venue where blind and disabled singers entertain.
