Lily's brother's both had illnesses that required expensive medical tests. Her parents sent her to work in a rock quarry not knowing she'd never be let out. Life in the rock quarry was a terrible combination of exhausting work and sexual and physical abuse. She was told repeatedly that if she fought back, she would be killed. In the Spring 2020, Lily was rescued by one of our field teams and taken to a safe house to get good food and begin counseling.
Today, Lily lives at The Sylom Children's Home, and has dozens of friends her own age. She is attending school where she particularly loves science. In her spare time, she loves to sing, and she enjoys reading the newspaper so she can learn about the wider world. Someday, Lily hopes to either sing professionally or become an advocate for children.
