  • | dtinews.vn | July 17, 2017 05:48 PM
An 80-year-old grandmother in Thai Nguyen Province is raising four mentally-ill children and three grandchildren alone.

Nguyen Thi Nhu, 80, is the sole pillar of the family with four children affected by Agent Orange and three fatherless grandchildren. Nhu's husband died 20 years ago so she often goes out to work in the field and catches crabs and snails to make meals.


Nhu and her grandchildren

Nhu's husband, Trinh Van Nhan, was a soldier at the battle of Khe Sanh in 1968. He suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and just screamed "shoot, shoot" after returning home until his death.

Their daughters are mentally-stunted and often destroy the furniture when they have a fit. From 2011, after they were diagnosed as being affected by Agent Orange, for which the family are given a small allowance. Nhu's youngest daughter was raped and gave birth to three children.


Nhu's daughers are mentally-stunted

Nguyen Dinh Binh, head of Cam Tra Village Association of Victims of Agent Orange said, "There are eight members in the family but only Nhu is capable of taking care of them all. She's already 80 so we are worried about her health. If anything happens to her, I'm not sure how this family will become."

Nhu said she was worried about her grandchildren's future. "We don't know who their father is and their daughter knows nothing. They can only depend on me but I don't live forever," she said.
