For some people in Cambodia, the devastating impact of flood waters is well known. The drawing above, titled "I hate the Flood" was done by a young girl who lived in my daughter's orphanage in October 2000. The Sharing Foundation raised $9,600 in donations for relief and rebuilding efforts. (And, relief was gotten to these suffering Cambodians much faster than to the people in New Orleans)
Cambodia is described as an "aid-dependent" country. Nonetheless, one of the world's poorest countries is offering $20,000 to Katrina's victims (via giving back $20,000 of foreign aid.) As one government official who was quoted in the news story said, " it's good to share even a spoonful of rice."
Awkoon (Thank you) Cambodia.
