All that started when I left with my kids my birth place Canada to start a new life a little bit more connected to nature, simple and enthusiastic. Once installed I created a company called “Jardin d’Eden Jamaica” arecycling building project, where I received people from all over the world searching for an experience far away from their common life. So “Jardin d’Eden Jamaica” was the place to get a good entertainment and for meeting all kind of people who have the same desire to share the same love of nature and simplicity.
So after changing three times my last destination was according to me the best since it was close to the river, on the main road, it was definitely well located. I really thought that this place was my last location where
“Jardin d’Eden Jamaica” could grow more and more.
Nevertheless we could make people that happy, that they all came back at least one time a year we would never have imagined that despite so much happiness terrible things could happen:
We lived attacks at times, burglaries, armed robbery, impromptu departure, the murder of our dog, theft of goats, moves ... What traumatize children for life, you will tell me! Despite everything, we started again. We were not discouraged!
But the story got to be continued and became even worse as it didn’t touch only my business but me and my kids directly.Indeed I received physical and verbal abuse almost every day inflicting by the man who was to be my boyfriend and my business partner.
These abuses became day after day more violent and more demonstrative. But despite of everything I had to be always available and smiling because even though I was receiving people who had chosen my accommodation thanks to the positive comments on the websites.
Obviously I couldn’t stand this abuse anymore, so I left this man to find a safe haven for me and my children but he never accepted it. These acts of violence became unbearable as he left me traces on the skin.
The last action was when he flanked a slap at my daughter who was trying to protect me by seeing that he was approaching me with a machete. The man in question cut off my arm leaving me an open wound that received four stitches.
Given the above, I could not go back to the places where I created a paradise for others, because this paradise had become hell for me and my children.
Those results, that now, I find myself without employment without income.
I must admit that these days are mostly the most difficult since living in Jamaica. I still have the same obligations: children to feed, to send to school etc.
You may be telling me that I should leave the country and go home. But that’s almost impossible because my children have integrated well here and they love the country. My daughter has even chosen where in Jamaica she could live if the idea of leaving would come to mind. J
Meanwhile since I left this man, I met a multitude of people who offer me wonderful suggestions. It seems to me that I’ve been living in a negative cloud that hid me from the potential world to grow my company.
Indeed, I have an opportunity to have a huge house on two floors where I can start my activities. The place is so big that I will be able to receive more guests and volunteers and this time I wish to take advantage of the new neighborhood that has been given me by offering the possibility to the volunteers to acquire more experience by also getting my neighbors in the usual spots.
Upon learning these sad stories, former volunteers, all in love with the project, suggested me to start this fundraising campaign so that I can own this property because they refuse to know that “Jardin d’Eden Jamaica” dies thus.
This is the reason why I invite you to share with your loved ones and help me continue my dream and continue to make people happy.
