I would like to brief you a lesbian case in Battey meanchey province as below:
The victims Su, 17 and her girl friend Raya, 20 have been got the serious abuse from their parents and local authority. The case is in Treas Village, commune, Svay Chek district, Battey mean Chey province.

Su is a femme who has been forced to get married when she was just 16. She took poisoning drug once her parents forced her to get married and stopped her from loving with another girl.
Then she run away from home to live with her girl friend for few days in Siem Reap. The parents called her and asked her back. If she comes back the parents will celebrate the (unofficial) wedding to the couple. She trusted her parents and came back home in Batteymean Chey. When she arrived the parents, police and local authority (village leader) have been there and stopped the couple and separated the two from each other. Su was crying and the Raya was hit by someone. Today, Su has been reported as KNOWING NOTHING. She can't recognize who is who...

Now Su has been kept in her parents' relatives' s house (the parents try to mobile the daughter). Raya lives with her lesbian friends. The lesbian friends (couple) have been abused by their parents but they now rent a room to live together. They don't have job yet but they help Raya to stay with. The lesbian friend, Danoy, has been contacted with LICADO, ADHOC and some other lesbian in the provinces. The legal aid is not supportable. But the gathering other lesbians would be the great job to do.

Do you have any idea to support the SU, Raya and the lesbian friends?
