Doesn’t it just break your heart when you hear stories of how little girls are being aggressively violated by male predators?. It is quite sickening and disgusting, to say the least, as the victims never remain the same after the incident, as they carry on that scar for life. And in some cases, this scar affect them greatly in their future relationships because of the post-traumatic stress associated with these attacks, mainly due to their violent nature. In most cases, the relationship of the victims later in the future deteriorates because, frankly speaking, not everyone can be patient or capable enough of dealing with these complex emotional problems associated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Victims are usually advised to seek therapeutic assistance in order to combat the disorder, which in most cases help them in recuperating and giving them a second chance at being normal citizens again. But for victims in the developing nations, where poverty is prevalent, it is a different story entirely as most families find it difficult to meet their basic needs of food, shelter, clothes and proper education; now mentioning therapy will be deemed too expensive for families living below the poverty line to afford. Today’s story is about an abused little girl in a third world country - Indonesia, from a disadvantaged family who can barely afford to send her to school.
It all happened on Monday the 28th of May 2018, when graphic images started swirling across the popular social media platforms in the country, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram where all alit with images of an incident that had just occurred in the Matang Geulumpang Dua neighbourhood in the village of Pante Gajah. It is believed to have started in the residence of the suspected male perpetrator, who is believed to be the boyfriend of the victim, who is currently unconscious, and undergoing in intensive care at the Bireuen Medical Center (BMC).
This backstory is one involving the classic story of an abusive relationship where things were going south, and the lady wants out, but the boyfriend insists things stay put. And as the lady loses interests and becomes cold in the relationship, the guy becomes more insecure and believes she is seeing someone else, since she won’t give him the attention he craves. And this prompts the boyfriend to act irrationally, and in this case violently attacking her with a machete, hacking his girlfriend, blow after blow until she appeared unconscious, that almost left the victim dead.
The victim who has been identified as Filza Maizura, is an 11th grade student of Private Madrasah Aliah Tanoh Mirah. A follow-up enquiry revealed that after the victim was hacked with machete various times by her boyfriend and his accomplices, they believed she was dead and tried to cover up their nefarious act by dumping her body to at PDAM Krueng Peusangan dam. Thanks to the intervention of suspicious residents and neighbours, who trailed the gang and intervened with the help of the police, they were able to rescue the girl who was immediately transferred to the intensive unit of Bireuen Medical Center (BMC) for medical attention, while the perpetrators were arrested by the police, and are currently undergoing investigation.
As mentioned earlier, this child may be scared for life because of this incident, the post-traumatic effect may be evident on for some time. Not to mention that she is from a poor home, her family are one of the beneficiaries of Program Keluarga Harapan (PKH) one of the Government Programs in eradicating poverty. The PKH is an initiative of the World Bank, although very instrumental in assisting families who live below the poverty line survive, it does not provide adequate medical coverage for these families, at least not the kind of medical cover Ananda Filza Maizura needs right now to help her fully recuperate from this major setback.
This post is an effort to raise financial assistance for this family, as all the financial rewards from this post will be directed towards aiding Ananda Filza Maizura healthy rehabilitation, and her family members. I admonish the Steemit community to help in the life of this little girl, by simply upvoting, commenting, and resteeming this post, we can save this girl’s life.
