Without any marketable skills, earning in the city was more difficult than Ramulah had anticipated. By the age of 13, she had resorted to the sex trade to survive, even taking food from men as payment. When her mother died a few years later, Ramulah lost all hope.Read more...
Our team encountered her while distributing hygiene kits during a community outreach. Ramulah was invited to participate in our carpentry program where she heard the Good News and gave her life to Jesus. When she started feeling ill a couple of months later, our nurses discovered that Ramulah was pregnant.
Ramulah was one of the first women invited to live at the Jewels of Honor shelter when it opened last year. This home is dedicated to providing a safe place for women who have survived trafficking, exploitation, and sexual abuse. Ramulah received prenatal care and on December 19th she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. At the shelter, she received ongoing counseling and anger management training. She is doing so well that she has been given additional responsibilities to lead all of the young women at the shelter.
This year Ramulah was enrolled at the School of Purpose where she has discovered a passion for hairdressing. She is currently thriving in her internship which will certainly lead to employment so that she and her baby can live independently.
