13 years old and exploited as a sex slave

At only 13 years old did Iréne lose her father. Without any support, she had no other solution than to start working in a bar. She worked as a waitress and was exploited by her boss by doing sexual favours to the customers. She was turned into a sex slave, prostituted by her boss. Iréne’s misery worsened when she became pregnant and could not possibly know whom the customers were the father of the child. She was so affected that she completely lost her footing. She did not mean anything anymore, not half of the procurers wanted to have her since she was not profitable as pregnant.

Iréne asks God that “Dr Mukwege, BarnSamariten and Panzi shall exist forever”.

After experiencing greediness, ungratefulness, and exploitation, Iréne was not late to respond to the offer of being taken care of at a SafeHouse. Iréne and her child, that was born after a full-term pregnancy, was cared for and she got everything she needed to live a safe life. She attends sewing training and every day her child gets to play at the hospital’s playground with other children. She does not miss anything and today she has started to heal after everything she has been through.

Thanks to Panzi and BarnSamariten she today has opportunities to be able to live a life where her dreams can come true. Iréne’s story is only one of the similar stories of many young girls.

*Iréne is named something else in reality.
