Info meeting organized in Kouk Khleang community

On November 20th Mr Son Chumchuon from KKKHRDA organized an info meeting in Kouk Khleang community for the community members and CVS youth to discuss the schedule of the construction and the latest design. 25 people attended the meeting and everybody were enthusiastic and supportive of the new design. They also independently decided to organize a committee for taking responsibility of the building site and the building before, during and after the construction. We were extremely happy to hear their plans. It seems that we have very active and committed people to work with and we will be leaving the building in good hands after it is finished next spring. Next meeting in Kouk Khleang will be held on December 25th.
