Angry Comes Back with Supplies

A Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) C130E Hercules carrying 30,000 pounds of prosthetic

medical supplies flew into Phnom Penh on Jan 30.

The flight included "humanitarian personality Angry Anderson, who is well-known

in Australia for his work helping underprivileged children and families", according

to a RAAF press release.

Angry, who is not as angry as he used to be during his youthful rock star career

and has now re-channeled that anger into more constructive efforts, was in Phnom

Penh last year to bring attention to the problem of landmines.

After his return to Australia he asked the Australian government to transport the

prosthetic medical supplies to Phnom Penh so the Red Cross could put them to good

use.
