Teenagers Escape From a Life of Abuse
Tanya's nightmare began when she was 12 years old. Whenever her stepmother and half-sister left the house, her father would rape her. He used various pretexts - a poor grade at school, the fact that he fed and clothed her - such were his bits of twisted logic that he used to make the impressionable and frightened girl "obey" his desires. After a while, she just accepted the hellish and cruel routine as part of life. Finally, Tanya, which is not her real name, decided that suicide was her only escape, as she divulged her story to a friend at summer camp.
It took her diary to reveal the full extent of the terrors she faced at home.? Her anger at her parents, their neglect and the beatings and abuse she received at the hands of her father. "Often I didn't sleep all through the night - guarding my sister during my parents drinking binges," she wrote.
When speaking about her future, Tanya is optimistic, she wants to be a lawyer or a psychologist to help children in similar situations. She also wants to find a way to be together with her sister who has been living in an orphanage after their mom died last winter.
Others bring similar stories to Dom Trudolyubiya. Irina, 15, left home because her mother's lover beat her up and also tried to rape her. "When I told my mom that he was unfaithful to her with another woman whom I witnessed, he struck my head against the wall but my mom refused to believe me," She said.
Vera got pregnant from the boy in a permanent orphanage and they kicked her out.
The situations still continue.......if you would like to make a contribution to our work, the girl's care and future please .
