    It’s almost too painful to contemplate: Could you survive being repeatedly raped over a period of years and then ultimately forgive your attackers? Put yourself in the place of Aya,* who suffered continual sexual abuse from age 11 to 13.

    When Ada met Ledi, our TWR Women of Hope team leader in Albania, the first words she spoke through her tears were, “My father has killed my boyfriend.” Her story is one of significant loss, but also one of restoration.
