Pisey Khim, Program Manager at Women's Resource Center, Cambodia
PISEY KHIM
Program Manager

My name is Pisey Khim and I am from Siem Reap province. I’m the youngest of 5 sisters and 1 brother. In early 2008, I married my husband Kil and now we have a lovely 5-year-old son, Sokdin. Why am I at Women’s Resource Center? Because it provides different types of information to women who need support and don’t know where to go. I am a Cambodian woman and I can say that I understand why women are too shy to talk about their concerns or problems – keeping them inside their minds – because I used to be like that too. I don’t think it is healthy because the problems don’t go anywhere, and they can grow bigger inside the mind and create unnecessary stress. I want women to come to our Center and share about their concerns and issues. We offer a safe and confidential place for emotional support and free information. Welcome to all women!

I feel happy to share my knowledge and experience to our beneficiaries.
