Vann Nath sitting alone at Tuol Sleng
I've just received an email from film director Rithy Panh with an urgent call for help. Vann Nath
, the S-21 survivor and painter, who appeared in Panh's film about S-21 was admitted to Calmette Hospital yesterday with a bowel and stomach haemorrhage and is fighting for his life. Panh's appeal is for funds to help with medical bills and offers of blood donations. Elen Gallien at the Bophana Center in Phnom Penh is collecting sealed envelope donations up to and including Saturday. Vann Nath has been struggling with his health for a few years now, I sincerely hope this isn't his final battle.
