The center has just been closed for the week for the Khmer New Year Holidays. The official days of the holiday are the 13th, 14th and 15th of April but everything closes down for the week as everyone heads to their family homes around the country. It is a very important time in Cambodia to share with family.
To mark it the center holds a huge party the day before the holidays begin. The party this year was great fun, all the children from the center, our older students and families in the area, all came along to watch and play the games. All the games were traditional party games so we had sack races, tug of wars, musical statues, flower and egg races, water carrying races, dances and many more.
Some visitors were kind enough to donate 2 huge cakes which we divided up and gave out to the children, along with the huge table of fruit. So they all ate well and went home with big smiles on their faces and on a sugar high! It is always nice to bring the community together for evens like this and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
