Description : His mother said that Cheaty had to drop out of school for 1 year at grade 4 because of the busy work of his brother and sister so no one pick him up to school, and there is no ramp at school that why made him had to walk by his two hand to toilet and class. He often got sick that made him absent many time so when he gets in class, the teacher always blamed him about this. He studies at grade 4, he feels very angry when anyone called him with bad word like “AKhven” (bully word for disabled person in Khmer).
When an ICRC staff asked him what he needed for school, he answered that he wished to have study materials, new clothes wear to school. After received the support, he will try the best to study because he wants to have knowledge as other and wish to get a job in the future.
