Singing their praises

Arn Chorn-Pond singing the praises of NGOs like his own Cambodian Living Arts
Unsung Heroes Cambodia, a book focusing on the work of 45 carefully-selected NGOs in Cambodia, celebrated its launch with a well-attended event at Monument Books tonight. Two of the authors, Lee Anderson and Kerryan Griffin were on hand to welcome attendees whilst Arn Chorn-Pond, the founder of one of the featured NGO's Cambodian Living Arts, also lent a had to proceedings with a short speech. The book is self-published and ten copies were given free to each of the NGOs featured, which include big-hitters such as CLA, Wildlife Alliance and Friends International as well as smaller, much less visible organisations. More on the book when I've had an opportunity to read it thoroughly. By the way, the reason for Arn Chorn-Pond's closely cropped haircut is that he recently played the part of a monk for a new sci-fi film called Listening, which was filmed at the temples of Angkor.
