A 17 year old girl has emotionally recounted sexual abuse she suffered in the hands of her father who sexually abused her repeatedly.
The girl who is currently under the care of the Christ Chapel Children’s home says she was rescued from the hands of her abusive father at the age of five.
“After my mother separated with my father, she left my small sister and i under the care of our father and grandmother. It is due to this situation that my father took advantage of and started raping me. He would rape me repeatedly every night,” she narrates painfully.
This caused her to bleed everyday.
She says her mother one day visited them and found her bleeding. She then took her at the Nairobi women’s Hospital where she expressed her predicament and was later taken to Christ the Chapel Children’s home.
“This home to me in, wiped my tears, counseled me and took me to school. This is a place where i was welcomed without judgement of my harsh past,” she says.
The girl says the incident is still engraved in her heart despite the counseling and care she has received from Christ the Chapel Childrens Home.
“I will never forgive my father. He might have done this 12 years ago when i was only five years, but i will never forget,” she says.
“If he did to this to me when i was merely a child, what about now when am a grown woman? He might even turn to my younger sister and rape her,” she tearfully narrates.
