Christine’s Story

    Christine’s mother was an orphan and at 14 years old she became so desperate that she dropped out of school and started working as a house girl in the city. By the time she was 15, she had been raped and had given birth to Christine. Christine’s relatives have always been hesitant to help her and she struggled to provide for herself, let alone her little girl. She tried to form a relationship with another man she thought would care for her and Christine. However after she became pregnant with his daughter Juliet, he disappeared and no one knows where he is or even who he is. After the birth of Juliet, their mother dropped the girls with her uncle who cared for them for a few years. Unfortunately, the uncle was unemployed and an alcoholic and he had no intention of caring for the girls long term. He left them with his mother, but she only saw the girls as a burden. It has been reported that she abused them, denied them food and insulted them constantly. She did these things, she says because she believes they are the children of a “prostitute”. Finally in 2017,  Christine and Juliet’s were welcomed home to the safety and stability of the Peace for paul family. Thanks to her sponsor, Christine will have a safe and loving place to call home and she will have the opportunity to attend school and to chase her dreams.
