And Then There Were 5: Sarey's Mother has an Accident

Sarey came back after spending her school holidays in Kandal province with family and friends.

She was looking forward to getting back into her studies and set off at 6:00AM for her first morning back at school. But the return to school has been short-lived. For later in the day she received a message than her mother had been burned by boiling water.

Just how bad we do not know but she expects to be away for at least a week so it can't be good.

We quickly got her a moto-driver who will take her to where a ferry departs for her home. Shaken and close to tears Sarey has no idea what to expect. We just hope for the best. And for decent medical treatment, always a dicey prospect in rural Cambodia.
