After starting the Women for Women program, she learned that her husband was alive and had taken a new wife. When Seraphine told him how their own son and daughter were murdered, she says, "he cried and could not be consoled." Still, she says, "I see that he has no intention to come be with us."
Nevertheless, the counseling has helped her feel stronger. She is not only able to support her six children but has taken in her brother's four as well. "They killed him and took his wife into the forest. We still have no idea whether she is alive. So I am trying to send ten kids to school. I have been sick with migraines. But the little energy I have to spare will be to ensure the education of the children, especially the girls, because an educated and a noneducated woman do not live the same quality of life."
