Volunteers celebrate

I NTERNATIONAL Volunteer Day on Dec 5 was a "time to remember that there are people who work for motivations other than money and promotion," according to VSO's John Stops.

There are about 200 volunteers in Cambodia working with VSO (United Kingdom), OSB (Australia), SVS (Sweden), JOCV and JVC (Japan), VSA (New Zealand), APSO (Ireland), the United Nations and CANDO, a joint United States/Khmer organization.

The volunteers worked in every area of the community, sharing the Cambodian lifestyle as much as possible, receiving a living allowance that was maybe only a tenth of the salary they could command at home, Stops said.
