Hello, I am Cécile Ifono, I am 27 years old, and I have been divorced for 4 years and
I live with my 4 children 3 girls and 1 boy. At a very young age, I was forded to married to a gentleman who did not love me at all.
Over the years, he and his parents started threatening me and beating me almost
all the time. I tried to rejoin my family, but they forced me to come back to his
house. Since it was overflowing, I took my children and ran away.
After that I lived with my family friends while doing small jobs (laundry for people,
carrying water...) until I met Mama Madeleine through my pastor's wife.
She supported me a lot and it was her who told me about the soap program of
woman help woman and how it could help my children and me.
Even if over time I have learned to no longer count on anything and on anyone, I
am still willing to give the best of myself if it can help me but especially help my
children not to end up like me.
