Happy Khmer New Year!

April 11, 2023

Khmer New Year, also known as Choul Chnam Thmey and Moha Sangkranta or just Sangkranta, is the traditional celebration of the solar new year in Cambodia and is full of tradition and rituals.  There will be parties with lots of traditional foods and drinks,  filled with Buddhist ceremonies that center on giving thanks, making offerings to deceased loved ones, and donating to those less fortunate. 

To celebrate with family, Children's Surgical Centre will close on 13 April, and re-open 19 April 2023. We also had a little party after work at CSC. The staff would like to wish everyone a very happy New Year, as we gear up for another wonderful year to come! Thank you for all your support of our wonderful little surgical centre.
