UN Honors Volunteers

More than 200 volunteers will help a local orphanage today to celebrate International Volun­teers Day.

Volunteers are scheduled to fix up Unacas, an orphanage 12 km from Phnom Penh. They plan to do everything from building a shed, assembling a playground, remodeling a kitchen and ex­panding a pig pen, a statement from the UN Development Pro­gram said.

About 45 children and 15 adults live in the orphanage, opened in 1996 by Sar Sakada, a Cambodian widow with two children. The event is open to the public with activities for children. A reception will be held at 7 pm at the Na­tional Center of Disabled Persons Cafe L’Haokun.
