Krousar Thmey Reunion
3-5 April 2013


Today was the opening ceremony for the 8th Family Festival of Krousar Thmey, a French-founded NGO which has 40+ programs for children at risk. DDP works with them as a partner because they have schools for the deaf in some provinces of Cambodia. These Family Festivals are held every two years.
