Some years ago I became a Christian and started to seek my purpose. I asked God about the abuse I suffered as a child. In order to have a deep understanding of a situation, you have to have personal experience. I came to the realization that my purpose was to help abused children.
In 2002 I left the UK and went to live in the Bahamas. I started teaching sewing, arts and craft as a volunteer at a school for pregnant school girls. Some of these girls were incest and rape victims. Hope Angels was born from this experience. I wanted to produce something, to raise funds for the purpose of helping children in abusive situations. One night I had a dream. In that dream I saw something flying towards me, which I though was a bird. It came through my window and stopped in front of me. It was a little angel. On waking I drew the angel, adding some more details to it and that is how it all began.
We all have a purpose in life. Some of us have been helped in our lives, by people who are definitely God sent and are real earth angels.
After 4 years I left the Bahamas and went to live in Jamaica. Whilst living there, I have seen personally the physical, verbal and sexual abuse of children. There were also numerous reports in the media. These children are being abused by their parents and other people who are supposed to take care of them. There are some communities, where children are being brutalized and murdered at an alarming rate.
Data from The Office of the Children's Registry (OCR) shows that close to 70,000 cases of child abuse were reported in Jamaica over eight years, from 2007. More than 13,000 cases were recorded for the year 2015. It said it received reports of child abuse for 18 out of every 1,000 children living in Jamaica.
