My Partnership with Liluye

Regina Afanwi Young
Posted November 16, 2020 from Cameroon

When I wrote my first story on World Pulse

https://www.worldpulse.com/community/users/regina-afanwi/posts/94173 I received such beautiful comments. I was so excited to be able to network with such amazing women. But then I thought it was not all about posting stories. I began following some members on social media to know more about their work. Jill's organization Liluye where she is founder/ CEO, was one of the pages I liked and followed up closely. Surprisingly after a while she asked if I was interested in her organisation. It took me about a month to respond because then I was more focused  on working with persons with disabilities.  As time went on I realised I had gotten involved in working with Vulnerable persons especially in my neighborhood. It was time to include trafficking survivors to my work. I wrote back to Jill telling her I could work with her. I was super excited when she added my Logo to Liluye's site. I felt extremely humbled how much she believed in me and my work.  As time went on I launched a fundraiser on covid19 kits  with the advice of Karen and help of Jill https://www.gofundme.com/f/appeal-for-covid19-kits-for-the-vulnerable?ut... It healed some fruits and I felt these women and girls could benefit also. Jill linked me up to one of her partners in Bamenda,  Fanwi of Mercy seed out reach who is also a world Pulse sister working with trafficking survivors. After a couple of meetings with Fanwi  We carried out an activity during which my organisation Association for the empowerment of the deaf and Vulnerable Persons supported by Mercy seed outreach gave out 8 covid19 kits and hygienic kits to 8 girls who were trafficking survivors. Presentations were also done on gender based violence and menstral hygiene. https://www.facebook.com/232655917121461/posts/1309815446072164/?app=fb.

We can also read more on on Liluye's facebook page https://www.facebook.com/875302089489445/posts/1284655551887428/?app=fbl

I want to thank  you all my world Pulse sisters for motivating me and making me see value in my work through all the wonderful comments you have been making on my posts. 

Thank you so much Jill for coaching, supporting me and above all for believing in my work. I promise total commitment to this partnership with Liluye. Together we can impact more Vulnerable women and girls.

Thanks so much my darling Seraphine and collaborator of mercy seed outreach. This could have not been possible without you. You did all the mobilisation. Thank you also for the work you are already engaged in with these trafficking survivors. This is clearly evident with how much self esteem they have developed. Together I know we will achieve more.

Hello Regina,
What an incredible story of love, care and partnership! Of course we believe in you, and will continue to believe in you because you are doing such praiseworthy work and even in the face of immense personal challenges, you continue to care for the vulnerable and hold their hand through challenges of their own. You are a beacon of hope for so many, and I pray that God bless you and provide for you immeasurably more than you could ever imagine.
Love and hugs :-)

Dear Regina,
How are you doing today?
This is so beautiful. Sometimes we need just that one person to believe in us and we see ourselves blossom!
Keep going. It was so thoughtful of Jill and not surprising, knowing the kind of person she is, to offer to share this space with you.
Wishing you both an amazing, fulfilling and impacting partnership.

Hello Regina,
Great partnership indeed. Jill is blessed with a kind soul. I am pleased to heard of what you are doing for the vulnerable. Just know that whatever you do to those that are vulnerable you are doing to the Lord. He sees and He rewards in Hi own way.
