At the shelter, Ms Egbon says she wants to empower the women by giving them access to education - Italian classes and training that may help them get jobs.
She allows the women to stay in the shelter for one year so that they can recover from their traumatic experiences and prepare for their futures. But to keep it open will be hard as she runs on a voluntary basis from donations. Members of the Nigerian community in Palermo have stepped in to pool their resources together to give what little they can.
And churches also play a role in raising money. From my afternoon at the secret shelter, it was clear the women there felt safe and happy - recovering well from their trauma.
They sat braiding each other's hair as they listened to Ms Egbon - and looking forward to the dinner to be made from goat's meat I had brought on special request from Palermo. I'm passionate, fun, loving, caring, and just need some love in my life!
I want to feel accepted and beautiful. I've been hurt a lot in the past by guys, but I'm not giving up! I'm a strong strong girl!
I just miss cuddling, kissing, being close to someone, feeling the warmth wantw their body next to mine! Idk, it just seems like there are no good guys out there any more! All are jerks, players, and very disrespectful! What I like in a guy: tall, ddf, good hygiene, shaved down below kind of proves your cleanalso I like well hung men sorry but I am very honest haha!
