Street Kid

By: Judy Westwater

Genre: Autobiography

Location NF 920

One child's desperate fight for survival.

Judy was three years old when she was snatched from her mother. Kept like a dog in his backyard- she ate from bins to stay alive. Judy was taken to South Africa where her life became unimaginably appalling. Beaten , treated as a slave and subjected to horrifying cruelty- escape was her only option. But living on the streets was just as dangerous. Through sheer determination she survived and she determined that she would care for those children on the streets as she once was. She formed the Pagasus Children's Trust, an organisation that now works in several countries giving street children a home, an education and hope.
