Yesterday Hak took a big step forward into a new future. It is nearly four months since this young mum and her two children came to us. Hak's ankles were busted up and her lower back fractured. Jumping from a three-storey building is hard on the human body.
Hak has been in hiding with us and slowly healing up since April. The hiding has to do with bad guys hunting her as a result of her escape. The dodgy organisation she escaped from both wanted her to keep quiet - and to come back under their control.
She had been recruited by a firm to train as a domestic servant in another Asian country. Once inside their 'training centre' she was locked in -and never allowed out. A friend of hers became ill - and was refused medical access. She became critically ill (appendicitis??). No doc. She died. This organisation is serious about control.
So Hak jumped - literally. She was so desperate to see her kids that she bailed from the third floor. We received her after she had the metal bits stuck into her legs at a hospital.
Here's the little soldier - with Sue as she heads out from our place yesterday. Sreymom (left) and Sypho (right) are part of the farewell team too. Hak is walking so well now - the last couple of weeks Sue had her doing the Healing Home stairs three times a day!
God has done so much for Hak in spirit, soul and body. She's got a good little faith growing in her and a good expectancy as she leaves us to be trained in a real job by another organisation. Her two kids are now in school and love Jesus too. There is a court case in progress but that could take a decade or two as we understand the recruitment agency ownership tracks back to a very influential person here. There is big money to be made from the poor.
