    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The young girl has been a victim of sexual abuse and rape over the years by her own trusted close male family members.

    She has kept her silence for long enough.

    Problems started when she was very young, possibly 13 or even earlier. Her mother, like many Filipinas, went to work abroad and left her daughter in the care of family. Two members of the extended family assaulted her. She only confessed to us recently, after the birth of the baby. She has only just turned 16 years of age and the baby is just a few weeks old.

    The first known and reported incident happened when she was 13 years of age. The brother of her mother and the child victim's own uncle was the predator. It was reported but family neglected to press charges due to fear of shame on the family name and severe consequences for the predator.(life sentence if convicted) according to Philippine law.

    More recently, she was raped by her first cousin, the nephew of the first predator, and the cousin is the father of her baby.

    She has now told the police about the more recent rape and would like justice but in the Philippines this will not happen unless she appoints a lawyer. She needs money for that and also to feed and clothe her baby.

    I am of British/Philippino descent, I have been back and forth to this city most of my life, have also witnessed the poverty and corruption first hand with my own eyes. There is a young girl that needs help due to the lack of government support. I wish to help as much as possible
