This floating village is home to a broad Vietnamese community. There are around 50 catholic families.

The floating church has two flouting buildings made of wood, the first one is used as a Church and the second one has three classrooms, one office and one library and a floating primary school has been built by the Diocese. The school is now managed by the government, with initial help from the Diocese.

As part of the Diocese's aim to facilitate integration of the Vietnamese community in Cambodia, two full time teachers provide literacy classes in Khmer and Vietnamese for children and adults. This is done in the church in cooperation with the Japanese Lay Missionary Movement.

Formation on hygiene, and different kinds of support to the sick and to poor families are also provided. The Church also organises trips to visit different areas of the lake with the students, during those trips they teach them about environment and fishing.
