What would you do if your neighbor was threatening to kill you?
::: call the police :::
And what if you were a single mother of two young girls and because of the corruption in your country, you have no legal rights?
::: lock all your doors :::
And what if your house had no doors?
::: YOU MOVE :::
You call friends or family who can help you find a new home. In a new place. Around safer people.
That’s just what Aleah did recently and our team jumped at the opportunity to help. Awhile back, Aleah and her daughters had found safety in our Emergency Shelter but she had since reentered society and has been living independently. Things were going well until a crazy neighbor started making death threats.
Once again, Aleah had to live in fear for the safety of herself & her children.
When homes are made out of thatched leaves and bamboo and doors are more for keeping chickens out than danger, you’re really only as safe as the community around you.
Our team set out to find Aleah & her daughters a better community that might welcome them in. We found a home in a sweet Karen community where we hope Aleah’s family can sleep well at night and can live their days without fear.
All of us at Compasio love being there for people who have no one else to call.
You can help make that possible by partnering with us!
