The early morning quiet in Chongrok commune in Kampong Speu province is broken only by the sound of a bouncy and active little girl clapping and giggling as she chases a dog across the front porch of the Chongrok Health Centre. Her grandmother Skaio Sivannary looks on and smiles at the progress her granddaughter has made in recovering from severe acute malnutrition.

 My name is Nuon Sreytoch.  I’m 16 years old.  I am in the 7th grade at Chantrea High School, but I have missed two weeks of school now to take care of my grandmother who is sick and staying in this hospital.  The doctor thinks she should be here for six more weeks and I have to stay with her.
