Dancing Village

Former members of a Khmer classical dance group gave a Boxing Day performance to

celebrate new costumes, instruments and the building of a dancing hall.

The village of Samrong Thmey, near Phnom Penh, is home to 67 border-camp returnees

who lost all their costumes and instruments in a fire on the border.

With help from Enterprise Oil, Shell and Continental Indochine, the British Government

has been supporting the village and is paying for one year's food supply, until the

village becomes self-sustaining.
