My name is Lun Phy and I am 36 years old, my husband is 39 years old. We have 3 children. Right now we are living temporarily with my mother on her land.

Our family’s living condition is getting worse. Three years passed and I do not understand what happened to me since I have often headache, feel dizzy and faint. I got weaker and weaker and I have started daily hemorrhage. Unable to stand anymore, I decided to borrow money from my neighbor to go to the hospital for treatment.

After consulting with a doctor in Phnom Penh, he said these kinds of diseases must be cured urgently or my sickness will get worse. So I am getting worried day by day regarding with financial support and treatment so now I suffer from mental illness. Never caring about my problems, my husband became selfish and whenever he needs me, I have to fulfill his demand.

He never cares what I say and what my problems are. When I deny him, he starts a fight by accusing me of having another man. Since then, my husband always goes out and stops caring about the family, our problems and our children. I am very sorry for my children who must stop school and who need to find any kind of support to help the family.
