Mr. Hai H., 51, and his wife, Mrs. Nary Mai, 51, who live on an island in the Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh, were married in 1979 and have eight children, four sons and four daughters. Five of their children are married and live outside the family home. The other three children are in local school.
