A close friend of mine who was forced into a marriage at the age of 17 is in need of urgent medical attention. She was impregnated by her arranged husband who is more than twice her age. Unfortunately, her baby was stillborn and since giving birth her health has been declining. Her family lives in a village in The Gambia and is unable to afford the medical help she needs. There are one too many stories of young girls being victimized by the form of abuse called child marriage and it hurts to know that my friend's life is on the line due to this practice. With help, we hope to send her to the city to be admitted to a hospital. Any donation is appreciated, Thank you.
