"[Before Boaz] It was not a good time. I was released from detention and started staying on a friend’s sofa. I had to sleep in the cold, it was terrible. Everything was so bad. My blood pressure was so high. I had no peace of mind.
Then my friend said I couldn’t stay any longer, so I moved into an emergency room with Boaz. They helped me a lot! I was the happiest somebody when I moved in. It was on 22nd December, 3 days until Christmas, and I was given clothes, food, gifts and some cash."
"It felt good to be in a warm house with new sheets. I could sleep comfortably, go downstairs and eat when I want to. I used to cry all the time but with Boaz I felt peace. With the women in the house, we loved each other, encouraged each other, ate together. A Boaz house is a family house.
Boaz welcome people. They have a heart of love. They show love in every area. They don’t discriminate. It takes away your stress. Before I was full of stress and looked older than my age. But with Boaz I felt peace."
