Yeab was diagnosed with cancer in 2019, but couldn’t afford to pay for surgery or treatment. Her husband had just died and she was the sole breadwinner for her family. With mounting debts and poor health, Yeab worried about what future she could provide for her teenage daughters Sreynich and Samnang. She thought she had no option but to send her daughters to an orphanage so they could finish their education.
After getting this case through our Hotline, our socials workers and Medical Outreach Team began working with the family. With support from the CCT Medical Outreach Team, Yeab had surgery and started chemotherapy.
