My uncle started raping me when I was 15 years old and he threatened to kill me if I reported him. I eventually fell pregnant when I was 17 years old and that was when this secret that had consumed me for years came out. I visited the one stop centre where ZWLA applied for a termination of pregnancy on my behalf. It was successful and the pregnancy was terminated. I manged to go back to school and I’m now writing my ‘O’ level exams. I’m grateful for the assistance I got from ZWLA because it enabled me to continue with my studies and I didn’t have to carry to full term, deliver and raise a child from rape. This is something I wouldn’t have managed to do without ZWLA.
