RUNNING FROM THE KNIFE

Lillian ran away from home under the cover of darkness in order to keep

from being cut (female circumcision) and married to a 65 year old man who

had other wives.  She was 11 years old at the time.  She was in the 3rd grade

and when she came home for holiday she learned that she would be cut

and married off with no other opportunity to attend school.

Lilian was saved by Nosim Mission and sent to a safe sanctuary boarding school.

She completed high school and is now in college.

Many more girls need to have the opportunity that has been given to Lilian.

Through our sponsoring program these young girls can be saved from a life

of poverty and salvery.

Please contribute.
