Naked girl returned to her village

Naked girl returned to her village

The young girl we found walking naked on the streets of Tororo is now returned to her home many miles and hours away from where we found her. It is a bittersweet story and the ending isn’t really a happy one but we had few options to choose from. We discovered she was from Mokono, which is 100 miles from where we found her walking alone.

The story if fuzzy and not all parts are verified but we believe the family didn’t want her and so they gave her to a witchdoctor who then gave some very bad advice. I’m not sure how much I should share to protect her privacy but I’ll just say she had a very difficult journey and most likely is traumatized for life from it.

We found medication for her which may or may not be the correct medicine but she isn’t violent anymore. No idea if they medicine will continue because it costs money and the family doesn’t appear to have any.

My driver who brought her home is a Godsend and got the police involved who then forced the family to take her back. Again not the best scenario but we are not equipped to handle this type of situation and right now her best option is to be back at home and I pray God watches over her. This is one of those cases where I have no idea what is the best but at the time when I saw her on the street naked the right thing to do was to save her before any other men could harm her further.

If you ever go to Africa or hear stories about it you are faced with these situations every day and you will lose sleep over what is the correct thing to do and how do you fight such evil in the world. No easy answers but one thing we should do is be compassionate to our neighbors and show love, the rest is in God’s hands…and those hands are pretty big.
