Irene Valicuatro

Just a simple, yet powerful story to share with you today.

"My name is Irene Valicuatro. I am 23 and the sole provider of two small boys. Natural disaster, famine and war brought me to Cebu. But, I could not find work when I arrived even though I graduated from a nurse's aid program. As a result, I became cornered in a life of prostitution to feed my family. In the brothel, my identity faded into black. But, I've discovered how precious I am to God through things like the Okoa jewelry project. I love to create beautiful jewelry. I hope it will keep me forever free from the darkness and despair of the brothel."

DFC exists so moms don't have to sell themselves to provide food for their family.

Wear your Okoa jewelry with pride today. Don't have any? Find yours here.
