Jasmine and Lily’s tragic story
In their short lives, Jasmine* 10 and her seven year old sister, Lily*, have known little of love, comfort or care. They have only known hunger, violence and abuse.
At school, the other kids bullied them for having dirty clothes and dirty hair.
At home, they had no time for homework as they were expected to do all the housework. They would get hit by their stepfather if they didn’t do it to his satisfaction.
But that’s not all he did. He was also sexually harming them – and filming it.
Nobody who should have been looking after these girls with the love and care they deserve were. But you can.
We got them out of that abusive environment and into a safe home with a wonderful foster carer. But Jasmine and Lily, and too many children like them, need more help if they are to stand any chance of living a normal life. They need clean clothes, counselling, medical check-ups, a healthy diet, and help to catch up with their schooling.
Abused children cannot wait. Will you be a champion for these children?
