Plans to aid the reconstruction of Wat Sbeng in Oudong have been boosted by a cash

donation from the Cambodian Institute of Human Rights and 19 other Khmer NGOs

The donation was made as a part of Kathina Tean (the clothing charity ceremony).

The temple, which was destroyed by the Khmer Rouge, has been partially restored by

local villagers since 1985.

A special donation ceremony was held on Nov. 14 at Wat Sbeng followed by a festive

barbeque of grilled chicken, frogs and fish from the Tonle Sap.
