Three children again - level 3, A12

It is quite unusual for humans to have triplets. In fact, it is very rare. Rebecca Phejane from South Africa is a special woman. She gave birth to triplets for the second time. It is fantastic to have children but Rebecca’s life is not easy. She says that sometimes it is like hell.

“I have no free time. I cannot relax. I have to be with my children all the time. When the doctor told me that I would have triplets again, I didn’t know what to say.

It wasn’t easy for me to have always enough food for my first three children and I didn’t want to feel so much pain again.”

Rebecca lives in a village alone. Children’s father works far away from the village. Rebecca’s mother doesn’t have work and she helps her with children now.
