THE TEARS OF A MOTHER

Mariatu Lawan
Posted August 3, 2017 from Cameroon

My eye's are feel with tears my heart is burning with pain only a mother can understand my pain where is my little innocent boy Aisha narrated her story.

I was at the age of16 when I decided to drop out schooland get married to this man I called my better half,little didI knew I was digging my own grave.

Nine monthslater I gave birth to a bouncy baby boy Adam that little boy get me a reason to live.

One year later my husband decide to bring in a new woman what could I have done rather than patient but the humiliation was unbearable.

Six months again he married the third wife the pains was to much I am still a young girl how can I share my husband with two mature ladies I can tolerarate any more if only I had continue my school this could not have happen.

My son my joy was seizedfromme and i was driven out of the housemy husband was cruel man who will heip me and were will i go from here.

How to Get Involved

Through the heip of sensitizaation we can change millions of woman who are facing violence and encourage them to go back to school

Dear Lawan,

Its a sad situation you find yourself in. I am truly sorry about it. The truth is this happens to so many girls and women especially when you are not economically viable or empowered.

I see you are from Cameroon.I will love to know your location.I work on ending domestic violence and what you are going through is an act of domestic violence. Do well to get in touch with me as soon as you can if you are in Cameroon through the following contacts  +237 685552125 or +237 671767200
