Family found

Dear Editor,

The letter about the search for my family ('Searching for family', PPP March 29-April

11) was a success.

I've got a Mother and three sisters still alive. With this message I would like to

thank the people of the Phnom Phenh Post for publishing the letter.

Special thanks to Edwin de Korte from GTZ Agriculture who found my family in Boeng

Nimol. It is a miracle and a dream that came true. Edwin: thank you very much.

Also thanks to all the people who gave me a lot of support.

In July I am coming to Cambodia, to see my family, after 20 years. There are still

other Cambodian people here in Belgium. I can only say, there is still hope for them.

- Ruan, Brussels, Belgium
