I came across a young girl who was brought to hospital to give birth to twins. She was only nine-years old. She had been in labour at home for several hours before her relatives brought her to the hospital. The twin babies died.

She was married off at the age of eight and impregnated by forty-something year old man.

I was very sad. I begged the child’s mother to keep her at home for at least ten years. (Wishful thinking)

We need Mothers and the Female Race in general, to be economically strong, so they have the means to protect their children.

Thanks for your article.
