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 specialist care, neglect or abandonment We aim to prevent this happening to children in Siem Reap Province by providing specialist care and therapies to enable the children to reach their full potential. The 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. These children were unable to attend state school and were often isolated in their home. 2015 welcomes the stage 2 of providing a comprehensive service with the opening of Preahkoun House, Transitional and Respite facility. "Preahkoun" means Grace in Khmer.
