All massage parlors in Cambodia had to close due to the government implemented corona measures. Sex workers sometimes finds their clients at massage parlors. This is what Transwoman T.P. from Siem Reap did to support herself and her family.
Friday January 6, Untenu Foundation organizes in cooperation with CinemAsia a program with 3 short documentaries about HIV-positive LGBTIQs in Cambodia – the Kingdom of Wonders.
Last week we received 3 requests at Untenu to assist people with HIV: a gay man of 30; a transwoman of 28 and finally a lesbian of 28 years old.
Her name is PC, she is 57 years old, transgender and she earns her money as a fortune teller at the Poipet market, where she also cleans on demand. She has known for 10 years that she is HIV-positive, but became ill because she didn’t have enough money to take her medicine with food.
Today Untenu has granted money to BC (Bandanh Chaktomok – National LGBT Network Cambodia) to help an HIV positive transgender sex worker with medical assistance so that she will be able to start working again after recovering.
