# Rescued from early marriage - latest update 25th Jan

rescued from early marriage

A young girl of 13yrs has been rescued from early marriage by the Child Officer

who has placed her in one of our homes until the Court has an opportunity to rule on her future.
We have a photo, not published for confidentiality reasons and I can confirm she is just a slip of a girl.
A very sad situation but we are pleased to be able to help

Update 25th Jan 2019

The young girl – turns out she is only 10 yrs was taken by the Child Officer from our home this week to court. She has now been committed to the care of a home in the County town where the Court is held. That is three hours travel on rough road from our home.
Thank you for your prayers
