Breshna was just 13 when her father sold her in marriage to an older man – who beat and raped her again and again. She was then sold to another man, raped, sold again to a 50-year-old man, gang-raped by six policemen, and finally locked in a room in the old man’s home where he raped her over and over as his “third wife.”

When Breshna escaped and was referred to Hagar, she was a violent 17-year-old girl in pain and with numerous medical problems. But after three months of one-on-one care and consistent love, Breshna’s smile began to return.

“When I arrived at Hagar I didn’t know if I was an animal or a human being,” she explains today. “But now I know I am a human.”

Breshna’s journey from broken to whole couldn’t have happened without the support of friends like you. So please give your very best gift to be doubled by the $20,000 matching grant today!
