Zoma is from an area called Argen and she came to Addis a month ago. Her parents thought they were sending her to a very nice home where she’ll be well taken care of and follow her education. Within the short time she’s stayed in Addis, her employer has physically assaulted her twice and luckily, the second time around, neighbors were around to witness this brutality. They were the ones who called the police and that is how Zoma came to the Emmanuel House. The scars on her face are all evidences of the brutality she experienced while working for her employer. The employer has been charged and Zoma will be staying at the Emmauel House until she testifies in court.
