A mother in Ha Nam Province is in need of help to treat polyarticular and support her children.

Tran Thi Kim Dung, 34, was diagnosed with polyarticular six years ago and has gone to numerous hospitals including Bach Mai Hospital, the National Hospital of Traditional Medicine and Vietnam National Cancer Hospital. Years of fighting illness has seen her weight drop sharply from 50 to only 20kg.

  

Tran Thi Kim Dung, 34, was diagnosed with polyarticular six years ago 

Dung said she had thought of death so that she wouldn't be a burden to her family but then she felt love and encouragement of her husband. "He said he didn't need anything. Just one more day as husband and wife was his life," she said.

Dung's husband died after falling from an electric pylon three years ago. After that, Dung and her two children moved from Thai Nguyen Province to her mother's house in Ha Nam Province.


  

Dung too ill to take care of the children

Dung's parents divorced after her mother had goitre, cirrhosis, fibrocystic breasts and had her breast removed. Her mother has been living alone ever since with worsening health. Both Dung and her mother can't take care of the family so the children, one aged 10 and another six, have to stay at the local pagoda and only meet their mother sometimes.

Dinh Thi Pho, chairwoman of the Red Cross Organisation of Bac Ly Commune said, "We’ve called for donations from our commune but haven’t raised much. Dung can't go to the hospital so she uses herbal leaves to get by."

"I wish to be healthy or at least have enough food to feed the children and then let them go to school. Only then can I bring them home," Dung said.
