Srey mao’s husband abandoned the family leaving her to fend for herself and her 5 children. Stricken with breast cancer, she had to undergo a mastectomy. As she was unable to work after her operation, she came to us to ask for help. We helped her with a month of rental while she stayed home to recuperate and also hired her neighbour for a month to help with looking after the children, cooking and household chores. In that way, we also helped to create a temporary job for her neighbor who was struggling to make ends meet.
