«It was found out that the woman married a 50-year-old man in 2014. They have two children. The woman has three children from a previous marriage. Despite the fact that her husband beat her, the woman continued to live with him, fearing public condemnation in case of divorce. In 2017, the youngest child was diagnosed with heart disease. He needed an expensive operation. To earn money for treatment, she worked in the field,» the message says.
In 2019, the Red Crescent Fund allocated money for the operation. The woman left for Korea. Taking advantage of the absence of his wife, the man raped his 13-year-old stepdaughter.
