Pupils hardly arrive at the school house when it rains

Most part of Cambodian land is so flat that the river water flows very slowly and sometimes stays at same place. When it rains, water overflows from rivers and stays at community lands. There, the water level increases gradually. In case of the collapse of dike of reservoir with heavy rain, land is slowly submerged and fields become a big pond.
