Kampong Cham, September 15, 2017: Kan Ben and Pchum Ben, called Ancestor Day, is one of the most important ceremony for Cambodian people who believe in Buddhism. No matter how rich or poor, Cambodian people always prepare food, materials and money for monks at pagodas to pray for their ancestors who passed away with hopes that the good deeds will bring them with happiness, healthiness and allow their ancestors to be at heaven or to avoid in a bad spirit.
With these reasons, every year PRASAC management and staff including all PRASAC provincial levels always participate Kan Ben days with gifts offering to the monks for dedicating to their ancestors and wishing the best for family. And, today PRASAC management, led by Mr. Sim Senacheert, President and CEO, joined 10th Ben at Serey Sophea pagoda located in Chhun Leak Dai village, Tong Tralach commune, Srei Santhor district, Kampong Cham province, and brought foods, materials and money for monks, especially contributed money to improve the pagoda’s infrastructure as well.
