A shy young woman came to stay with us at Florence Booth House after she was bought to Canada for medical assistance. As a respected and well-known accountant in her native country, Namibia, this woman had given up her job to assist her family in their car sales auto industry. However, plans with the business did not go smoothly and she suffered physical abuse which resulted in severe eye damage. She left the country and was referred to an excellent team of eye specialists in Canada who worked to restore her vision.
After her recovery, I worked diligently to find her permanent housing where she is currently residing now. She is in good heath and is currently working part time and also in the process of applying to the PRN program at George Brown College. She stated she would not have survived this ordeal without the care and compassion received from Florence Booth House.
