Despite having different circumstances, all of them share the same excitement of returning to school. Right in the middle of the flood zone in Hồng Ngự District, Đồng Tháp Province, hundreds of students have to cross a river to school. Most of them are Vietnamese living in Cambodia, which makes traveling to school all the more difficult. In the following report, let's follow our reporter to check out the situation there.

Hồng Ngự district has more than 300 students who are Vietnamese living in Cambodia. During the flood season, Sở Thượng River becomes a raging torrent. For safety reasons, most of the children have to be accompanied by an adult to school.
