The $700,000 spent on new classrooms, bathrooms, kitchen facilities, a water well and sports facilities at the school represents the largest-ever US humanitarian donation to Cambodia, according to a statement released by the embassy. USAID had originally built the school in the 1950s, but it was badly damaged during the civil war, the statement said.
