Children with Disabilities Programme
“Children with disabilities need to be given the opportunity to reach their full potential and be accepted as part of the community.”
In Cambodia children with disabilities are often isolated as parents / carers keep them hidden from society. They may die prematurely due to lack of specialist care, neglect or abandonment.
We aim to prevent this happening to children in Siem Reap Province by providing specialist care and therapeutic interventions to enable children to reach their full potential. The Special Needs Education Programme for children with disabilities was established in January 2012 after a survey of the families attending GHCC revealed several children with disabilities living in the community and unable to attend state school.
