HI organised Covid-19 information sessions for 30 disability organisations in 13 provinces during the Covid-19 epidemic, in partnership with WaterAid and Cambodian disabled people’s organisations.

After having suspended its other projects, HI recently resumed training on inclusive employment, and mother and child health. Its Covid-19 awareness sessions for villagers are limited to 15 people, in line with prevention measures, and temperatures are taken systematically on arrival. Everyone is expected to respect social distancing rules and wear a mask.

HI also worked hard to ensure patients performed rehabilitation exercises at home during the epidemic. Srun Vimean, one of HI’s physiotherapists, is worried about the quality of these sessions performed without a physiotherapist, however:

"Patients who exercise at home may not have a lot of time and can forget the instructions we give them. There are no physiotherapists present to correct them."

Patients were recently able to return to HI’s rehabilitation centre, which is a big improvement, but they are still not allowed to sleep there for security reasons. This makes it extremely complicated for some patients who live far from the centre and need to rush back home.

"We are currently looking into the idea of providing rehabilitation sessions via videoconferencing.",

explains Srun Vimean.
