Kandal province, Cambodia, July 2017: In Cambodia, it is often the case that children with disabilities are hidden by their families, in the belief that they are to be ashamed of. Some children are even chained, or locked up, as parents don’t know how to deal with their children’s conditions or disabilities. Children with disabilities are some of the most vulnerable and forgotten in Cambodian society: excluded from education and other aspects of life.
