Just six months ago, Mahoing Savoeun, a father of four with another child on the way, was ill and near death in his dilapidated home in the upland province of Mondulkiri in eastern Cambodia. Through its village-level contacts, Cambodia Family Development Services (CFDS), which works with vulnerable Phnong highland people, found Savoeun and, utilizing emergency food assistance provided by the UN World Food Program (WFP), provided the food and medical care to nurse him back to health.

Cambodia - Drought
By Jamilah Samian/Halimah Sadia
Phnom Penh (dpa) - Prime Minister Hun Sen warned on Tuesday that Cambodia faces a food shortage of about 88,000 tonnes of rice for the year 2003.
"I think we can solve this problem as we are preparing rice for hungry people," Hun Sen told reporters after presiding over a National Disaster Control Committee seminar.
"The shortage of rice is one issue, but the other issue is that we will not let any people die from starvation," he said.
New York (dpa) - At least 38 million people in Africa are threatened by hunger, caused mostly by a drought that is extending from the Horn of Africa to the southern part of the continent, the World Food Programme (WFP) said Tuesday.
WFP director James Morris told the U.N. Security Council in an open meeting that the lack of political will remains the only obstacle to help those in needs.
''This is an unprecedented crisis, which calls for an unprecedented response,'' Morris said.
