The purpose of the visit is to create opportunities for Cambodian journalists to understand Vietnam’s culture and national construction and development, in order to further increase the understanding of the journalists and Cambodian people about cooperative and friendly relations between the two nations.

As planned, the delegation will visit and work in Hanoi, Hai Phong and Ho Chi Minh City.

Photo exhibition on Vietnamese AO victims held in New York

A photo exhibition on Vietnamese Agent Orange (AO)/dioxin victims entitled “Pains and Smiles” organised by an American high-school student, Sam Moehrke, opened in Brooklyn , New York , on Oct. 19.

The exhibition displayed photos on Vietnamese AO/dioxin victims by Vietnamese photographer Doan Duc Minh, attracting a great number of local viewers, particularly students.

Sam, 18, told a Vietnam News Agency reporter that he had an intention of organising a photo exhibition on Vietnamese AO/dioxin victims following a tour to Vietnam in late February. Sam said that the organisation of a live photo exhibition in the US will help relieve pains and losses that Vietnamese AO/dioxin victims have been suffering.

All money raised from the sale of a photo book “Pains and Smiles” will be used to help Vietnamese AO/dioxin victims, Sam said, adding that he was expected to hold similar photo exhibitions at his school or in other cities such as San Francisco, California and Albany.

Speaking at the exhibition, Merle Ratner, Co-ordinator of the Vietnam Agent Orange Relief and Responsibility Campaign (VAORRC), called upon American people to help Vietnamese AO/dioxin victims.

The exhibition will last for seven days.
