Letter: Don't forget the Chams

Salaam alaikum, which means peace be unto you. I would like to comment on the lack

of coverage of the cultural minorities of Cambodia, especially my people the Chams.

Chams, who almost lost their identity and culture.

Please,if you may, in the near future, include articles on my people and their daily

struggle, so we may never be forgotten as a part of Cambodia.
