Floodwaters have inundated a small relocation site inhabited by ethnic Vietnamese residents. The site has no running water or electricity, and a promised garment factory that was supposed to provide the 150-odd families with an employment opportunity remains half finished. To make matters worse, permanent residency cards given to residents are not being recognized by public utilities and private businesses, illustrating the discrimination faced by one of Cambodia’s largest ethnic groups.
