Miss Bo lives in Brotean village, Svey Reng province near border Cambodia-Vietnam. She realizes herself-has problem with cleft lip when she was ten. Since she then was so shameful with friends and neighborhood.
In her family, she has got 4 brothers and 4 sisters, she is third child, all of her brother-sister had ready gotten married except her and they live different house in village. Now a day, she lives with 80-old-mother in a small hut and work as growing rice and some vegetables behind house.
She has only two daily activities in her life, she goes to work at rice field during the day, after work, she backs home directly; she rarely walks along the way beside village, visits relatives, or participates public ceremony as villager’s wedding, traditional ceremony. “Because of cleft lip, i am so shy to others, no man wants to marry me, i am not brave to show public”. For 50 years a go, she had never heard about cleft lip operation from local authority, government or charity organization.
PECH BO-afterWhen visiting of local pastor in her village in May 2008. She first knew that CBN is offered free cleft lip surgery, then, she was surprised, happy, and really wants to do surgery. She hopes she would have normal lip and being easy to make friend with other and she brave to join public.
After the successful surgeryShe smiles happily and she speaks up to thank so much to CBN, and donor who provide this help to change her face from disfiguration lip to be beautiful lip. “Now, my almost life always stays at home is leaving, my shame is out of me, because of you care, you make me hope and a new smile, i remember you forever.” Thank you
