I was at home with my family when some men knocked on the door. My husband opened the door and they started to beat him. I knew that it was a rebel group known for beating people, abducting them, and then taking them off to kill them.
My little daughter was crying in the living room. They beat me and took me in their car. My child was abandoned and I never found out what happened to my husband.
I was kept locked up in a little village and I was regularly raped and beaten by 7 different men. I lost my dignity and I thought I would die there. After seven months a man forgot to lock the door. I escaped and called my friend who came and got me. We cried together because I was alive. It was unsafe for me and I had to flee the country so my friend helped me get to Turkey. I found out that my daughter was living with another friend but I could not get to her. Her absence weakens me. I always think about her and what she does.
When I first got to Turkey, I was afraid to be around men because of what happened to me. I was all alone. I do not speak the language. I did not see the good side of life anymore. I had lost self-confidence. I cried too much and now I do not want to cry, I want to be strong. I was looking for help anywhere. God showed me the way to International Team’s Mom and Tots program. I was 7 months pregnant. They gave me clothes, toys and diapers so I did not have to buy anything.
One of the women from the mom and tots program came to the hospital when I gave birth. This really pleased me because I am not alone. I realized that even if we have different skin color, we are family.
Leanne from the mom and tots program has become a good friend and has given me moral support which is just as important as material support. She even celebrated my birthday, which is something no one had ever done for me, and I was very moved and very thankful.
We get together with the Mom and Tots program every week and we talk about our joys and difficulties and about the Bible. I feel like I am at home. I even found roommates through the program and we live together with our children. Here I discovered fraternity and that even if I don’t have much, there is always someone in a worse situation who I can help.
I knew that God existed but I needed to go through these hard situations so I could experience his power.
My son is almost one and he has never met his sister. I have spoken to my daughter and I found out that she is refusing to eat because she wants to be with me. I want to be with her more than anything and the people from the Mom and Tots program is helping me figure out a way to get her back. I don’t know where I would be without International Teams.
