Script Details

custom demo required 
My mother and father died of HIV/AIDS.

I was alone.

Relatives were picked to adopt me.
But soon I was abused. That uncle threatened me. I was abused and forced to have sex for a long time.
When it was discovered that I was HIV positive and pregnant out of incest, my aunt was so angry.

She started punching me and starving me, not giving me any food. She said everyday commonly she really just wanted to be rid of me.
She always spoke these words,
All sorts of names I was called: animal. dog. all bad names.
They said I was not worthy to live.
“Just go throw yourself in the river. You are nothing. Just go kill yourself.”

I was chased out of their home like a dog. They chased me out of the village into the bush to die, sent me to the river to be eaten by crocodiles.

Thats how I left home. Going anywhere, in all directions, into the bush, moving up and down.

I was abandoned.
I was powerless.

Because I had no food. No where to go. (I found another relative in another village but was chased from there.)

When I was being chased, I did not like my pregnancy. I thought, it is better to have this child die. I thought it was okay to die than to live. I decided to follow what they were saying.

In Zambia there is a very deep and strong river. There is a place where often you hear of people being eaten by the crocodiles.
I went there. I decided I was sent to go die and be eaten by crocodiles.
I was standing there, crying near the river - I was thinking of jumping into the river to die.

But a woman came. I don’t even know her name. She followed me up there and said,
“ What are you doing here, because this is very dangerous.”
I started crying. I could not even talk. She still just hold me.
She just said,
“I can not leave you here. Let me take you to a place where you can find rescue.”
“Let me take you to the children of God so you and the baby can survive.”

She brought me to the Khume center. There I was given food, finances, and everything for upkeep for the pregnancy. There I stayed quite well.

I was rescued. I decided to change my mind, to live.
