Former king Norodom Sihanouk presented $50,000 to Chinese authorities Wednesday, to help the country as it struggles in the wake of a devastating earthquake.
The money and two sympathy letters were delivered to Chinese Ambassador Zang Jinfeng, said Prince Sisowath Thomico, a former adviser to the king.
Thousands have died in the aftermath of a massive earthquake that shook southwestern China Monday. Tens of thousands are still missing.
The donation comes after Cambodia gave $50,000 to cyclone-struck Burma last week.
