EMPOWERED BY: Angela Elizabeth Ross
Angeline Lah is eighteen years old and is currently eight months pregnant with her second child. According to Angeline, last month, she had gone to her boyfriend’s mom’s house to collect her payment of 4,800LD ($48 USD) from her. While walking home, and feeling disappointed about not being able to receive her money which she been counting on, her boyfriend secretly followed her. When she had reached a deserted area, he came out of nowhere and beat her unmercifully. According to Angeline, the hospital where she sought treatment strongly advised her to stay away from the boyfriend until she has the baby. They stated that should he beat her again, there is a good chance that she and/or the baby might not survive. Angeline had recently moved in with her sister where she heard about Girl Power and come to us for help to sustain her and her 5 year old son.
