She began to receive support through our care programme at various levels. She had a new hope in life. She was introduced to our positive group of friends and families and the acceptance and love she received from them became an important tool in empowering her. Her children began to go to school her standard of living improved as she found a job for herself.

Today she has hope and walks with great confidence knowing that she is not alone in this journey.
