Rima lives in a two-room plastic tent with eight other members of her family. Her parents view her as a burden since she is married with children but has no husband to provide for her. Each morning, her father sends her to labor in the fields in order to pay off his debts. This risks her safety as refugee girls are often at risk of abuse when they work in the fields.
She Is Safe ministry co-workers reached out to Rima’s family, praying they would eventually allow her to gain an education that could transform her life. They eventually allowed her to attend the She Is Safe sewing school. Now she has learned skills that provide necessities for her family, and she has experienced God’s love through our program and its leaders. Despite suffering so much at a young age, Rima is beginning to heal through understanding her infinite worth to her heavenly Father. Her family has also begun to value her in new ways.
