Mother and five children struggle with poverty
  • By Tuan Thanh | dtinews.vn | October 28, 2013 11:32 AM

A poor woman who lives with her five children is asking that the community come together to help ease her burden.

 

Mrs. Tuoi’s tent 

The 41-year-old mother of Danh Thi Tuoi and her children are now living in a dilapidated tent in Khanh Lam Commune, U Minh District.

Tuoi got married 20 years ago. Both families were very poor, and had to live without family support.

Gradually, the husband became an abusive alcoholic. Over the past year since she gave the birth to the youngest child, he has left home without saying her a word.

Many people asked her that why she has too many children despite living in the difficult situation.

Since the husband left home, a relative lent her a small land plot where she built a tent. Now, every day, she works land for cash crops. Recently, her 17-year old daughter, also supported her works; therefore, one of her children named Ho Van Cam could enter Grade 1.

She hoped that her family’s condition will be improved with the support of the daughter, but, two months ago, her youngest child aged less than one was diagnosed with blood turmour. Tran Van Thoi District’s General Hospital doctors advised her to take him to a hospital in HCM City for treatment, but she can’t due to the poverty.

“I can suffer from the hardship and the poverty as long as my children are strong,” the woman said in tear when speaking to the reporter.

According to Huynh Thanh Luol, Vice Chairman of Khanh Lam Commune People’s Committee said Tuoi’s family is the poorest one in the village. Local authorities even considered assisting her to build a house, but she even does have not a land plot. They also called for donors’ support to help her family.

He added that local authorities plan to submit the provincial People’s Committee to buy a resettlement area for poor ethnic minority households, including Tuoi’s family.
