The young woman I wrote about is called Scheilla (pronounced just like Sheila) and she's eighteen years old, is five months pregnant and had not eaten for four days. She has no one to care for her and can't find a job. Her sister was contacted but she has children and can't provide for Scheilla. We brought her some food which she barely touched. The doctor spoke harshly with her about caring for her unborn child and Scheilla just cried. We are trying to find a shelter for her but it doesn't look good at all.
