Mother's Day SPECIAL - See How You Helped Ny, 36, a Mother of Seven

Ny, Age 36, talks motherhood and WRC

Growing up, Ny lived with her adoptive mother and her adoptive mother’s daughter. She has no recollection of her birth mother. She grew up very poor because her adoptive mother is a widow who struggled to support the family. Although there was little money, Ny felt loved and supported by her adoptive mother, who pushed her to study and get an education. Despite this, Ny cannot read and write well since she stayed in school only until grade 3.

A mother to seven children ages 7 to 20, Ny had her first child when she was only 16. She had six more children with her second and current husband. Unfortunately, both of Ny’s husbands have been violent. Ny once left her current husband but since she had no home or work she became a beggar. She went back to her husband because it was the only way for her to support her family.

When Ny gave birth to her first child she didn’t know what to do when the baby cried. She didn’t know how to hold, carry or bathe the baby. She was especially worried about having food for the baby since she had little money and wasn’t always able to work.

At WOMEN’S RESOUCE CENTER, Ny learned about family planning and how to take care of her children. She learned about how a woman’s body changes as she grows from being a girl to a woman, and also about having healthy and safe pregnancies.

Ny will share what she learned about women’s health and reproduction with her own daughters. By educating Ny, Women’s Resource Center is making a difference for her entire family.

This Mother's Day, support a mother in Cambodia a chance to learn and grow, in honor of your Mom.
