The Editor

I would like to thank you for the article in the April 21st

issue "CT's plan progressing well"

It was well-written and portrayed a

great deal of the enthusiasm for the school felt by both staff and

students.

There is one small problem. The impression given was that the

National School of Prosthetics and Orthotics was an entirely Cambodia Trust

venture. This is not the case. The school was initiated by CT but in partnership

with AFSC, and now receives financial backing from Veterans International and in

the near future from American Red Cross. We also have management support from

ICRC, HI, and the full support of the Ministry of Social Affairs Labour and

Veteran Affairs.

We at NSPO are delighted to be part of this inter NGO

project and have worked hard to build a sense of participation and

collaboration.

I would like to thank again those who support the school

in monetary and in other ways.

- Carson Harte, Principal,

National School of Prosthetics and Orthotics
