Appeal for funds to help cover the costs of translating historical Khmer documents from French into Khmer
In the work of translating documents on the transfer of the Khmer Kampuchea Krom territories to colonial Vietnam to continue colonizing her until now by colonial France that we researched and founded for more than 3,000 pages at Aix-En-Provence in France, now we have made an agreement with the translator that will span 20 months to complete, commencing on January 4, 2016.
Expenditures are as followed:
– Per month for one translator: $600
– Per month for two employees: $200 x 2 = $400
– Per month for miscellaneous expenses: $200
Total expenses per month: $1,200 (One thousand two hundred)
These historical documents, after 200 pages had been translated, we will publish and share with free of charge with you and our compatriots. For expenditures on translating these documents, KKC and KYAD (The Khmer Kampuchea Krom Community and Khmer Youth Alliance for Democracy) have hope on you and compatriots for your participation in making your financial contributions in accordance to your charity and conscience.
Please ask that you and our compatriots take part in sharing the cost of translating these important historical documents and allow this work to succeed.
Your donations will help protect and preserve the Khmer history and will allow future generations to learn, study and conduct research on Khmer history.
May you, the venerable Buddhist monks, and compatriots achieve the 4 blessings of the Buddha: Longevity, Brightness, Healthiness, and Strength for always.
