Wat

Ounalom will benefit from a clean-up project later this week in

preparation for Khmer New Year. Up to 100 students, parents, monks and

laypeople will clean on Thursday between 3pm and 7pm, said Pou

Sovachana, a volunteer teacher at the temple. He said the students at

the Buddhism Education for Peace Centre wanted to volunteer to improve

the pagoda and said they would tackle other temples at a later date. He

said everyone was welcome to help: "Participants need only bring a

broom, garbage bags, masks, gloves, a dustpan and most importantly a

good heart and a smile."
