MON INQUIETUDES.

Suis Betty, j'y représente les filles victimes de trafic sexuel des femmes,suis grandi dans une famille un peu pauvre.ma maman travaille de temps à autres sur des dispensaire mais ne gagnaient pas jamais assez pour que je puisse continuer mes étude ou avoir à manger. papa avaient en plus des problèmes d'alcool.
l'argent qui est prévu pour la scolarité de mes soeur et la mienne servent à payer l'alcool, il revient souvent la nuit à la maison et se disputaient,donc mon travail et de s'occuper du ménage.
un jour papa n'est pas rentreé du travail.pendant deux semaines.maman, mes frères et soeur et moi l'avons cherchée mais nous ne l'avons pas trouvée.j'etais inquiète et je ne comprenais pas ce qui s'était passé.
Etait-il mort?ou,nous avait-il abandonnés? le soir, dans mon lit en cherrshant le sommeil, je regardais un photos de papa et je me sentais tout à la fois fâchée et triste.
pour nous puissions survivre, je travailler comme bonne chez le propriétaire de notre maison,je travailler de six heures du matin jusqu'à tard le soir,je lavais les vêtements,faisais la vaisselle,le ménage et cuisinais.à la moindre faute, si par exemple je laissais tomber une assiette, l'homme se mettait en colère.
il criait que papa était un alcoolo et que moi je suis si mauvaise que même mon pére m'avait abandonneé.
un jour j'en ai eu assez et je suis partie seule à la rue.et depuis ce jour là je reçu une grande deception consernant mon père.et je constater que cet une viol, et quand j'avais atteind au centre MAMASHUJAA j'etais si heureuse et on nous forme que nous allons s'unir ensemble pour mettre fin au violence faite au femmes memement aux enfants.
En effet nous vous supplions de nous aider à combattre ce mauvais coeur qui entoure nombreux de papa aujourd'hui. si beaucoups d'enfants sont malheureux(se) cet à cause des irresponsanbilité de nos père.
MERCI.

MY WORRIES

I'm Betty; I represent the victims of the sex trafficking of women. I grew up in a family that was a bit poor. My mom works from time to time at the clinic but did not earn enough for me to continue my study or to have enough to eat. On top of that, Dad had alcohol problems. The money that was meant for the schooling of my sisters and I is used to pay for alcohol, he often comes home at night and argued, so my job is to take care of the household.
One day Dad did not return from work. For weeks my mom, my brothers and sister and I searched but we couldn’t find him. I was worried and I did not understand what had happened.
Was he dead? Or had he abandoned us? One night in my bed while trying to find sleep, I looked at a photo of Dad and felt angry and sad all at once.
For us to survive, I worked as a maid for the owner of our house, I worked from six in the morning until late at night, I was washing clothes, doing dishes, cleaning and cooking. If I made the tiniest mistake, like dropping a plate, the man would become angry.
He shouted that my dad was a drunk and that I am so bad that even my father had abandoned me.
One day I had enough and left alone in the street. Since that day I feel deceived in regards to my father and considered that it was rape.

When I reached the MAMASHUJAA center I was so happy – they train us to unite together to stop the violence done to women and children.

Indeed, we beg you to help us fight this evil heart that surrounds many fathers today. If a lot of children are unhappy it is because of the irresponsibility of our fathers.
Thank you.
