Embracing Tradition: AMATA's Heartfelt Engagement in Songkran Festivities

Posted on | CSR News & Activities
Also known as the Songkran Festival, the Thai New Year or Water Festival is one of the most anticipated holidays in the country, marked by joyous celebrations and cherished family gatherings.
Derived from Sanskrit, "Songkran" signifies the entry of the sun into a new sign of the Zodiac, marking Thai New Year's Day. April 13, known as Maha Songkran Day, symbolizes the conclusion of the old year, followed by Wan Nao on April 14, and Wan Thaloeng Sok on April 15, which heralds the beginning of the New Year.
During this cherished holiday, preparations include cleaning homes, temples, and communal areas, as well as honoring senior people with water blessings. Families gather for merit-making rituals, offer alms to monks, and express gratitude to ancestors, fostering love and respect. Many people embark on journeys to reunite with their families in the countryside, expressing their love and respect. 

As part of our community engagement, our CSR teams are fully engaged during this festive period, and while the country celebrates the Songkran Festival,  numerous volunteers work tirelessly behind the scenes. They ensure traffic security, organize community events, and, most importantly, provide support to the elderly.
AMATA's CSR teams and employees embraced the spirit of Songkran by engaging in a series of heartwarming community activities.
