Former U.S. President Visits Cambodia

Former United States President Jimmy Cater visited Cambodia for his humanitarian mission with an international nongovernmental organization known as Habitat for Humanity.

With Deputy Prime Minister Sok An, Minister in charge of the Office of the Council of Ministers, the former U.S. president on Nov. 21 presided over an inauguration of New Life Community’s 21 new houses in Oudong commune and district of Kampong Speu province.

Supported and assisted by the community itself, the houses are built for the poor Cambodians identified by the Habitat for Humanity in collaboration with concerned authority. Former U.S. President Jimmy Cater has been doing similar activity in countries along the Mekong River, including Laos, Vietnam, China and Thailand.

Specifically for Cambodia, the Habitat for Humanity has built more than 600 houses since 2004 and will increase the number to 6,000 by 2011.
