On a dry, hot Tuesday morning in the village of Damnak Sdey in western Battambang Province, 11-year-old Ien Samnang waits outside a health centre. He has come to receive treatment for sores on his legs resulting from a spinal cord injury. His mother and the commune focal point for women and children carry him inside. The mother and son have travelled more than five kilometres from their village for the appointment, which is being provided for free by their commune.
