meet Chanbo, Sreyrath, Lao, Vana, Menh, Sony and Tol

Since the start of the CBR Program CDMD had a great impact on many lives of people with disabilities and their families. Over 63.000 people with varied health problems, of which preventable blindness, were identified. Most of them received treatment and were operated. At the same time of the people with disability supported by CDMD 67% made their way out of poverty.
