The United States embassy in Kuala Lumpur is calling on organisations in Malaysia to apply for its Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation, a grant to preserve cultural heritage all around the world.

Its counsellor for Public Affairs, Scott Rauland, said the grant which started in 2001 had been given to 640 cultural preservation projects in more than 100 countries.

“This represents a contribution of nearly US$26 million,” he told Bernama, here, Sunday.

Earlier, he accompanied Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, Judith McHale, on a tour of the restored No 8 shoplot in Hereen Street, here.
