Ms. Rochom Eth, aged 39, of Jarai indigenous ethnicity, lives in Leurhon village, Ke Chong commune, Borkeo district in Ratanakiri province. Today, she is a farmer and hired labourer to support her family and her children’s education. She owns no farmland, lives in poverty, and suffers domestic violence from her husband and her drug-addicted son. For more than 10 years she has been working alone; her husband cares about nothing and her son is in prison due to drug usage and trying to burn their home. She cannot afford to take her son to the Drug Addiction Correctional Centre.
