Flooding is no barrier to study

Parts of Cambodia including many roads are flooded, which makes it difficult to travel.

As many people are affected by the problem, many Facebook users have posted photos of flooded roads. One picture that was posted in the Facebook group “I Love Cambodia Hot News” on October 1 received a particularly large amount of attention.

The picture, labeled “School orientation day on the water – however, they did not cancel their class”, shows a group of students in school uniform on a boat. It was shared and liked many times.

Some Facebook users shared concerns commenting that travelling to school on the water could be dangerous.

Most people were very supportive of the students’ efforts to get to school, like Thida Pich Chan, who commented: “Try hard my brothers and sisters. You will have a bright future.”
