Sng Oun, 50, along with her children and grandchildren, make up a family of twelve. They live in a modest ground level dwelling in Thmei village in the Svay Donkeo commune. The government classifies her as ID Poor 1, meaning that she lives at the lowest level of poverty in Cambodia, and spends most of her time looking after her grandchildren as their parents work in Thailand in order to send financial support to the family. Sng Oun attended the first CHOBA village meeting along with her community members. She learned how diseases are transmitted through poor sanitation and how this leads to chronic health problems such as diarrhea and other waterborne illnesses; problems she has seen firsthand among her family members.
