  • Tep Lygoech visits the Cambodia Trust Centre in Sihanoukville to have an orthotic brace fitted to her left leg. Lygoech suffers from osteomyelitis an infection in the bones. Often, the original site of infection is elsewhere in the body, and spreads to the bone by the blood. Bacteria or fungus may sometimes be responsible for osteomyelitis. As a result the bone becomes too soft and breaks very easily. Lygoech got an infection in 2004. The leg brace will enable her leg muscles to be trained and become strong again so she is able to stand. Lygoech joined the Cambodia Trust in 2004.

  • Srey Chet is affected by severe cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy occurs when the brain is damaged and inaccurate messages are sent from the brain to the muscle. Cerebral palsy is non-progressive, non hereditary and non contagious. Many people believe that cerebral palsy and other disabilities are contagious, and this is frequently a reason why disabled children are excluded from school. This is why advocacy work is so important, to challenge these ideas which are rooted in social and cultural beliefs and of course a result of lack of education.
