Elizabeth Charles lost her right hand to attackers in her village in 2015, and is now living at the Kabanga Protectorate Center. The criminal case goes to trial tomorrow, and Elizabeth is traveling over 500 kilometers to the court to testify.
We wanted to share this with you because we are very proud of Elizabeth. We hope that her extraordinary bravery will result in a conviction and lengthy jail sentences for her attackers, which often does not happen. Sadly, none of Elizabeth’s family would accompany her to the trial, so our wonderful Kulwa, the new matron at the Kabanga center, will be her companion. We send them off with our love and prayers for a safe and fruitful journey.
