Siem Sai Hour is 49 years old. She has ten children, five daughters and five sons – three children are married but seven children still live at home.

Siem Sai Houer went to a local midwife seven years ago when she gave birth to a baby – the mid wife used a dirty knife and she became very ill and started to bleed heavily. The family sold their cow, their land and some rice paddy in order for Hoeur to go to the provincial hospital. They couldn’t help her.

Now she has become an invalid and is unable to help her family. She has become breathless – her husband becomes very angry with her and her illness. Sem Sai Hoeur is losing hope – she is waiting.
