Save the River Day
Yesterday a lot of people in this little town took time out to do something to clean up the river. The Kampot River runs through the middle of town and has seen some hard times. So a few people organized a cleanup day called "Love Kampot River Celebration and Clean-up" that involved over 300 local schoolkids, officials of Department of Environment, local business owners, and other people who care about the place they live. After the cleanup, several boatloads of people joined the fishing boats on the river.

The day resulted in the collection of a lot of garbage, people thinking about and appreciating the river, and a good time had by all.
