If you are wondering what situations our women find themselves in and why they need help then read on. This is the story of a new woman who has just been referred to us, it is in her own words:
I am 35 yrs old. I used to live in a village along with my son, daughter and husband. We were farmer and my husband was carpenter but unfortunately my husband had suffered from throat cancer. We took lots of loan from villagers and brought him to Kathmandu for his treatment, but it was too late and he took rest in the Lord. Because of my poverty my sister in law took my daughter with her for her bright future.
When I was in miserable condition one of the bad man misbehaved me and he had rapped me. Then I could not able to faced out to the villagers, he destroyed not only my life but entire my family social life.
In our society what ever be the matter the villagers had blamed women they accused me characterless women and locked me at my house, my brother in law took my son along with him then I was completely alone. I did not have any other alternative so I got forcefully married with the same man who raped me. My stories doesn’t end here after marriage, I had got one daughter from him. I had got physically and mentally torture from my new husband and my in laws. It was intolerable to me so I ran away from their and I divorce him and settle to the my new life along with my daughter. I started to work as a maid to earn my livelihood. Still my life is going on sorrow and pain.
Please pray for me.
