Each group comprised different ASEAN nationals based on individual skills and interest.

Volunteer Sharifah Mashhorina Malai Shahran from Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) said, "My experience in Lvea Aem was out of my comfort zone, sleeping with mosquito nets and watching villagers collect rainwater for cooking and washing. It's changed my perspective, I've learnt to be more thankful." She added that teaching English there had convinced her to continue her pursuit in delivering education.

The same occurred to Najiah Yahya, 20-year-old Mathematics student interning at the Ministry of Finance, who said, "Before this I never thought of teaching, especially seeing what my mom (a teacher) went through.

Opposition leaders Sam Rainsy and Kem Sokha on Tuesday ended the CNRP’s three-day demonstration in Phnom Penh, but vowed to hold further demonstrations if the National Assembly is convened on Monday without an agreement having been reached with the ruling CPP over the disputed results of July’s election.

Mr. Rainsy arrived at Freedom Park just after 4 p.m. to greet the thousands of people who turned out for the last day of the mass protest that began Sunday and peaked that night with violent clashes in which security forces shot dead a man near Monivong Bridge.
