Ons ken vir Tamara al vandat sy 18 of 19 jaar oud was en het haar in Seepunt ontmoet. Ons het die voorreg gehad om op verskillende maniere en plekke uit te reik na haar.

Tamara het in die gevangenis beland en sy getuig dat dit haar rehabilitasiesentrum was en dat sy daar besluit het om nie terug te gaan na haar lewe van prostitusie nie. Sy het blyplek en werk (die verkoop van skoonmaakmiddels) by ‘n vriend gekry. Na ‘n tyd het hy egter van haar verwag om weer betrokke te raak in prostitusie en dit was glad nie ‘n opsie in haar gedagtes nie. Die Here het op ‘n wonderbaarlike manier ingegryp in die situasie en ons kon haar help om in ‘n nagskuiling blyplek te kry. Die Here het ook ‘n werk vir Tamara voorsien.

Uit Tamara se eie mond kan jy hier die storie hoor. Dit is haar presiese woorde tydens ‘n onderhoud:

My name is Tamara Nachalwe. I’m from Zambia. I came on South Africa in 2000. I’ve been in South Africa almost 15 years now. And it was not good to be in South Africa without no family. I ended up being a prostitute, sold myself, because my friends taught me how to do drugs. Then I was very hooked. Almost 15 years I smoked drugs. I smoked different drugs; rocks, Tik and a lot of buttons and things. But now I’ve met Jesus as my personal Saviour. Jesus has changed my life totally.

I stayed in this country also illegal almost for seven years. I didn’t renew my papers. But the day I met God, everything changed. I went to immigration to renew my papers. God has provided me with a permit, without paying any money. Glory to God is all I can say. Because where God open the doors no one can close it.

It is hard to come out from the life in which I was, to be who I am. Like now when I look at my skin, I look at myself. I just say, ‘Thank God for what You’ve done!’.

I haven’t seen my family even for 15 years. Maybe my family they even think I’m not around, I died. But by the power of God I’m alive. I just want to tell the people out there that, ‘people, it’s not too late for you to decide, because when God opened a door for you, no one can close it’.

I just want to say thank you to the Straatwerk people. I was every time selling myself for money, money which never even lasted. And I had not peace in me. But thank God the Straatwerk people came to me and they taught me the Word of God. They did not only teach me once. They came to me always, in these years they were like friends for me. They come every time in and out. They put me in shelters, for me to change. Up to now I can stand on my feet and say, ‘thank you!’ to Straatwerk people.

Tamara het Kersdag alleen gevoel en wou nie saam met haar vriendin kerk toe gaan nie. Sy het toe besluit om haar hare te laat doen, al was dit nie regtig wat sy wou doen nie. Terwyl sy vir haar beurt gewag het, het sy ons Aksie Immanuel uitreikspan gesien en saam met hulle begin uitreik. Ons het haar toe na Straatwerk genooi vir middagete om deel te wees van die groter Straatwerk familie. Die Here se tydsberekening bly verstommend.

Hoe om betrokke te raak by hierdie vroue se lewens

  • Neem ‘n vrou aan om spesifiek voor te bid.
  • Hope’s up – dit is vrywillige werk by verdienstelike organisasies (soos ouetehuise, DBV, ens.) waarvoor Straatwerk die vroue dan vergoed. Dit help hulle om iets te he om op hulle CV te skryf en om nodige vaardighede te ontwikkel (R120 per dag).
  • Journey of Hope – elke Donderdagoggend is daar ‘n samekoms van vroue wat uit die lewensstyl van prostitusie kom; daar word gefokus op hulle groei deur die beskikbaarheid van verskillende dienste (soos berading). So ‘n oggend kos gemiddeld R40 per persoon, vervoergeld ingesluit.
  • Verblyf by ‘n skuiling – R25 per nag.
  • Hulp met kos en nodige lewensmiddele (toiletware, nie bederbare produkte, ens.).
  • Indien jy ‘n finansiële bydrae wil maak vir hierdie spesifieke afdeling van Straatwerk, gebruik asseblief die verwysing Prostitusie:Voork&he
