This story is passed from one person to another
She was just discharged from the hospital……Today after office hours, I heard from my sister-in-law that there is anew way to rape women. It happened to one of our good friends. The girlleft the office after working hours and saw a little child crying on theroad. Feeling pity for the child, she went and ask what happened, thechild said, “I am lost. Can you take me home please?”. The the childgave her a slip and tell the girl where the address is. And the girl,being an average kind person, didn’t suspect anything and took the childthere.
An there when it arrived the “child’s home”, she pressed the door bell,yet she was shocked as it the bell was wired with high voltage, andfainted. The next day when she woke up, she found herself in an emptyhouse up in the hills, naked.
She has never even get to see the face of the attacker…. That’s s why nowadays crimes are targeted on kind people.Next time if the same situation occurs, never bring the child to theintended place. If the child insist, then bring the child to the policestation. Lost children are best to send to police stations.
Please let your female friends to know about this.
This issue I got from my Colleague, Daroth. Thank you.
One thousand women from over 150 countries were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year in an attempt to call international attention to the important role women play in challenging harmful social and cultural barriers and creating peace in their communities and the world.
The names of all 1,000 women were released at a press conference held in Bangkok on Wednesday, June 29.
Eight of those nominated live in Cambodia. They range in age from 33 to 63, from prominent activists to humble village women.
They work on a variety of issues, including domestic violence, peace education, demining and micro-financing.
All share a deep commitment to bettering life for women here, in a country still recovering from the deep scars of over 30 years of civil war. And all have unique ways of working towards their goals.
-Oung Chanthol founded the Cambodian Women’s Crisis Center, which has served over 55,000 survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking since 1997.
-Dr. Pung Chhiv Kek Galabru founded the Cambodian League for the Promotion and Defense of Human Rights (LICADHO).
-Mu Sochua is the deputy head of the steering committee for the Sam Rainsy Party and wrote the Prevention of Domestic Violence law, now before the Parliament.
-Chea Vannath was forced to work in labor camps under the Khmer Rouge and now organizes public debates on the Khmer Rouge Tribunal.
-Boua Chanthol helped set up a small savings programs.
-Oddom Van Syvorn is a quiet, rural woman who has shown extraordinary courage and dedication working with women in her small village.
In addition to the seven Khmer women nominated, Emma Leslie, and Australian national who lives and works in Cambodia, also was nominated. Leslie developed peace education for Cambodian high schools.
The 1,000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize 2005 project began in 2003 and relied on many coordinators and volunteers from 20 different regions of the world to identify and document the 1,000 nominees.
At least one Cambodian nominee is overwhelmed with gratitude.
“This is more than an honor. It’s more than I could have ever dreamed of,” said Mu Sochua, one of the nominees and a former Minster of Women’s and Veteran’s Affairs. “We have heroines in ever corner of the world, in every village in our country, who are so rarely recognized … the prize is really for them.”
