The extreme quandary of trafficked women who are prostituted caught her attention in 2014 and subsequently became her passion and life calling. She became known as “Mama V” amongst the girls as she walked the streets at night to reach out to them and to assure them of Jesus’ love and that He has not forgotten them.
Her intimate working with individual ladies, their pimps and even their clients, have given her great understanding of the complexities and challenges facing the girls who are traded as stock and coerced to sell their bodies in exchange for drugs.
Vilna was compelled to make a difference in their lives by reaching out to them as a friend and mother, offering emotional, physical and spiritual support and helping them to find hope, faith, love and dignity. Her passion and dedication led to a decision to formalise the outreach into a stable community impact organisation.
In 2016 she moved to Arcadia to be closer to the ladies. The ladies named the home, OUR HOME, as they finally have a home where they can simply be her daughters.
