Good morning, I just want to let you know the situation that happened in our street. A 17 yr old orphan girl was staying with her elder sister and unfortunately she got impregnated by a fisherman. As I write, she is suffering and has run away from her elder sister's house, has no job or means for paying for her own place. She doesn't know what to do or where to go but at the moment she lives with her grand mere.

We ask the world pulse community to kindly take note of the situation and intervene if possible. Thank you my friends and happy reading

taking the first step

Sibatu,

I am so sorry to hear about the situation facing the young girl in your community. It is very difficult to know how to help in instances such as these, but you have taken an important first step by speaking out about the violence she is experiencing. Thank you for telling this story rather than ignoring her suffering. It is only through brave voices like yours that our communities will begin changing.

Thinking of you,
Kirsten

Importance of sharing information

Dear Sibatu,

I feel very sorry for the this young woman you are telling us about. I hope that she is feeling safe and secure in her grand mere's house.

I am not sure if there are ways in which you can help her, but you did one important step. Sharing her story with others. Education is a crucial component of our work, and I am grateful to you for doing so. Also, is there a medical facility where this young woman can go? Any organization that could help her?

Thinking about you and the young woman,
Marija
