Our Lives Here

Hello Dear Ladies!
Our bodies are not objects. Here things are difficult and women and girls dress badly and this is the reason that violence is done to us by those who would attack us. Our young girls do not speak out. Truly, men (pimps) harass us greatly with regard to sex. I am speaking of this because our young girls do not have the capacity to refuse, they fear and sometimes respect the men and they are bribed with clothes and sometimes money. We women plead with you, owners of night clubs, hotels, and bars, to refuse to accept these men and their young girls because it gives them a place to perpetrate these violent acts.
Thank you, with love.

merci pour ton journal

Merci Bayo,
Nous voyons que vous avez beaucoup d’amour pour vos jeunnes soeurs, et que vous vous faites du soucis pour elles. C’est un grand problème partout ou il y a des jeunnes filles qui manque le nécessaire pour vivre. Nous éspèrons, pour vous et pour vos soeurs, que les propriétares de ces établissements vous viendrons en aide.
Chalereusement,
Votre Famille à World Puls
