Last night three of the @hopes_anchor_durban team hit the strip with beautiful Christmas gift bags for all of our girls.
There were squeals of delight when they rummaged through and found yummy chocolate from a friend in Germany 🇩🇪 (yes she specifically went out and bought 50 bars of chocolate for our girls and shipped them to us for the bags!!!)
There was also toiletries, lotion, nail polish, more chocolate and face cloths. So many items that our precious girls can not afford to buy. And then on top of a bag each they also received a brand new pair of flip flops.
Their joy was so beautiful.
And then our joy was put out when girls pealed back their clothing and showed us horrific bruises and welts. A number of them have been preyed upon by certain men who are taking great pleasure in causing as much pain as possible on the sex workers that they pick up. Our darling Yolande strangled and raped on the beach, Thobeka kid napped raped at gun point, beaten and dumped, Lulu kicked, punched and raped and left at the side of the road on a busy highway.
The police throwing them out of the station because they are sexworkers and they “asked” for it. No case opened. No sympathy or compassion. No JUSTICE.
Just kicked out onto the street to try and survive.
There are so many things happening with our girls that I can not share on social media, but please be praying for their protection.
Please pray that Father would speak to their hearts, heighten their intuition, surround them with protective angles.
As Christmas draws closer please pray for their hearts. There were many tears last night and ours flowed with theirs.
As our family prepares for Christmas our thoughts are with the families and individuals in our lives who do not have the opportunity to celebrate.
