The odds aren't in her favor. She lives in a country where rape happens every day, all day long. By neighbors, fathers, brothers, even policeman...The majority of these crimes aren't reported. But she bares the scars, inside and out, and the stigma for the rest of her life.
Three dollars. It isn't much in today's world. You can buy a couple of candy bars or a large drink. Three dollars just doesn't go very far. Unless you add your $3 to my $3 and I add mine to hers $3 and she adds hers to theirs...before you know it, $3 becomes a lot.
There are so many who have wanted to contribute to The Mercy House, but can't commit to $25 a month. And you know what? We need your help. Because every dollar counts.
I started thinking about how I can't do this on my own. Even with my immediate and extended family pitching in, it's still too big. But if we all do a little, it becomes a lot. Even when we were dirt poor (by America's standards), I think we could have scrounged up $3 a month in the cushions of our couch and in the bottom of my purse.
On the Third of each month.
To remember the Three girls raped every 45 minutes.
