This need isn’t financial, it is for protection.
A man molested one of the girls that had been one of the first ones to be helped at the children’s home. He has raped several others in the village and caused the death of another woman.
After almost 5 years of pressing the authorities, it went to trial. His family took the judge to lunch during the trial. That is a novel concept here in the USA. Anyway, he was convicted. His family used some of their abundant resources to have him out on appeal.
Since Inday is an aunt to the girl, he had been around threating her and Babeselle as well as others with bodily harm if they didn’t pressure her to drop the charges. The police got a restraining order for them and the judge arranged for him to go to another island.
However, they notified her that the appeals court was close to beginning the hearing process. He is back in the area and according to them she and the others at the children’s home need to be very careful. According to them, it is because he expects the appeal to fail and they said he is not right in his head.
I ask that you will keep this group in your thoughts and especially in your prayers. They have so little and the children’s home is not secure due to not being completely finished due to funds, so we ask for protection from above.
