Siem Toen is 47 years old and has 4 children. When she gave birth, the only help was the local midwife. The midwife was not very skilled and she used a dirty knife.

Since then Siem Toen has had bad discharges, her belly hurts, she can’t sleep and is always dizzy. Her husband became angry and turned to drink – he no longer helps the family – just stays drunk. She is in despair – she cannot work any longer and there is no one to help. She is waiting.
