ZOE is pleased to be partnered with Steve Bowler who lives and works in the country of Malawi. Steve works with
Fountain of Life, which exists to support women who are sexually assaulted in Malawi.
According to FOL...
Rape is a fact of life for women in Malawi. 50% of women in Malawi are raped. Many rape victims are little girls under the age of 10. In ideal world we can prevent this from ever happening again. But the truth is, ONE OUT OF TWO young little girls will be violated and they need help. Right now just to recover. The only thing worse than being raped is being left alone to cope with trauma. Our mission is to prevent this tragedy from defining the rest of their life. We can not prevent them from being raped. We can save them from facing it alone...
Steve recently sent us some of the stories of the girls and women that have been assaulted and it is absolutely heart breaking. As a mum of a daughter I can't imagine the pain.
But here is the good news: ZOE Projects, with the support of generous Canadians, is responding! This week we will provide FOL with $5500 to help them continue this much needed work...but it is not too late to give! (There is always time to give!) CLICK HERE to support FOL and projects like it.
