Mistreated. Marginalised. Oppressed.
Women in the Middle East need your help
Seyhan* was at home and caring for her young son, her husband working many miles away, when the unthinkable happened. She was abused by a male relative and thrown out into the streets. Desperately, she prayed, “Lord, I wish I had someone to talk to.”
Can you imagine how frightened Seyhan must have felt? Her experience is awful, but tragically, not unusual. Women like Seyhan, across the Middle East and North Africa, need to be lifted up and restored by God – and you can help them today.
Seyhan had moved to a new city, and it was here that she cried out to God for help. As the prayer left her mouth, she heard a SAT-7 programme on TV in the next room. The voice of the presenter, Ayda, drew Seyhan in. This was someone she could trust. Seyhan called the show and poured out her heart.
Ayda prayed with Seyhan on air. But she didn’t stop there. Ayda drove over 600 miles to meet Seyhan in person and offer prayer, comfort and support.
I sensed the depth of her pain,” said Ayda. “As a woman, I could understand the difficulties she experienced, and my heart and soul cried as I listened to her.”
