Searching for family

Dear Editor,

My name is Ruan. I live in Belgium. I was adopted by a Belgian family in 1979. At

that time I was 9 years old. The red Khmer took me away from my family in Boeng Nimol,

where I was born. Now I am searching for my family in Cambodia. The names of my mother

and father are Man and Phon. I had two sisters, Mitoeit and Minjeille, and five brothers,

Lah, Ron, Ra, Roun and Roën.

Can somebody help me to find my family? I don't know if they are still alive but

I have a lot of hope. If you know people in Bang Nimol (a little village between

Phnom Penh and Kampot) please ask for my family. Please contact me for further information.

- Ruan
