Victims of Agent Orange in Vietnam
Her children 21 and 16 years, but they still cry at night, turning over, screaming in pain and sucking fingers to calm down. Tran Thi Hai, which is itself almost does not sleep, sing them lullabies. Children Hai confined to a wheelchair, they were born in the village, caught in the spread of Agent Orange in Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The woman believes that their health problems were caused by dioxin – a toxic chemical herbicide that the U.S. army used to spray on the territory of the communist forces. 35 years after the end of the Vietnam War was left only the legacy of Agent Orange. Tran Van Tram and Tran Thi Dan needs help. Their four adult children crawling around the house on all fours. They can not straighten up, and drawing are just a couple of steps, not more. 61-year-old Tram said that their children were born healthy, but in a year or two they still do not know how to roll over. They can not speak. Tram remembers how U.S. troops sprayed Agent Orange over his village in the province Kuan Tree, near the former demilitarized zone dividing North and South Vietnam. Once every day he was fishing in nearby lakes and streams. And now he and his wife devote all their time caring for sick children.
