Happy Cambodian New Year, Year of the Tiger!

AAHI participated in an exciting event this past weekend. Sunday, April 18th marked the end of New Year celebrations for the Cambodian Buddhist community. The event was full of festivities; games, food, music, dances and a Cambodian bazaar. AAHI set up an information table and educated attendees about our services. Although it was a cold and windy day, AAHI staff and health promoters were warmed by the rich and colorful culture of the Cambodian community.
We would like to thank the Cambodian Buddhist Society for allowing us to participate in this joyous celebration!
