Some of you may have followed the story of our smallest girl who has had to attend court recently to face her defiler.
Yes, I know. It's ridiculous that a THREE year old should have to come FACE TO FACE with the monster that raped them. It's unbelievable that this monster should also be able to interrogate them as well. But it happens and this is just the way it is in Kenya.
This is why, 2 years ago, we raised funds and installed the very first video link in Kenya! (See information on this here https://rafikimwema.com/video-link-reality/)
But unfortunately there are more than 1 courthouse in our area and not all of our children go to this main court where we have the video link. We have wanted to put video links in all of our surrounding courts but our lack of funds has stopped us.
Our sweet baby has had to attend this court 2 times so far to face this 'man' and both times she has not been able to testify because of her fear. Now this is happening, I am ANGRY. I am FURIOUS. How dare he? Re-Traumatise this little girl over and over again in the hope she will not testify so he can walk free to do it again? NO WAY.
We all say 'how awful, how can this happen, what can i do etc etc' I have something you can do. I want to raise enough funds to get a video link into this court house (safe/sound proof room with TV screen and all sound equipment/video camera in room and in court house with screens etc so they NEVER have to face them again) and installed and working in time for her next court hearing in ONE month. To do this I need to raise the funds ASAP and get started on the installation because if you have been to Kenya you know things happen a little slower than is ideal.
What do I need? I need $20,000AUD and I have pledged to not sleep until this happens. Let's show our Rafiki we are behind her.. and not just her, the hundreds of others who will utilise this video link in the future. Lets get angry and lets do something together.
