Club will serve poor

The Editor,

Our society should stop completely the calling of the poor people as Funcinpec, CPP,

and this and that, because it is not only continuing to tear our social fabric apart,

but also hurt our efforts to heal the wounds that have been caused by three decades

of war.

The social club that was recently launched by Mr Nhiek Bun Chhay is not a threat

like so many critics allege, but instead will help restore human dignity, especially

for the poor who have been neglected and abandoned.

Thus our society as a whole can help heal the wounds and restore human dignity by

giving it (the aim to raise financial assistance for the poverty stricken) a chance.
