"My name is Pun Huoy Ngim and I am 48 years old. I have two kids. I have been working with Tabitha Cambodia since October 2003.
Before getting a job with Tabitha, I had a very poor life. We had nothing. My husband and I worked hard to provide daily living such as my child's education, meals, water, electricity, especially medical expenses. Day after day, our life became more and more difficult. My husband was sick and died 7 years ago.
Our family didn’t have a motorbike nor our own house. Tabitha Cambodia employed me as part of the Cottage Industry Programme. From that day, my life changed from day to day.
Tabitha made my dreams come true. First, we dreamt to get our motorbike. After 5 years of hard work, we were able to buy a motorbike for our family. After 7 years, we bought some land and built a small house to live in. Without Tabitha I don’t know what it would have been like for a single mother like me.
I really appreciate Tabitha Cambodia, especially Janne Ritskes, who is the Founder and Director, and came here many years ago to support Cambodians."
