Agnes Padan takes a long journey back to her Lun Bawang village in Long Semadoh, in the interior of Sarawak to piece together what happened to her mother, Kam Agong, who died sixteen years ago shortly after she gave birth to her eighth son, Jordan. Agnes’ journey reveals a story of severe medical negligence that led to Kam Agong’s eventual painful death. Through ‘The Story of Kam Agong’, we get a glimpse of the state of maternity healthcare available to villagers living in rural areas of Sarawak.
