A reflection from the manager of Caritas Bakhita House, Karen Anstiss
You may wonder what the significance of the shoes is.
They are outside our quiet room. Inside are 7 women praying together.
Everyone a different faith, everyone with their own troubles
but working to overcome them, whilst supporting each other.
There can be no better example of how we should treat others.
Saint Josephine found refuge and love in her faith, it helped her overcome the cruelties she had suffered.
176 women have stayed with us, so I have 176 heroes to look up to, to learn from.
Happy 8th Anniversary Bakhita House and thank you everyone that has played a part in assisting our women!
