Pearl Valor has given further evidence in court about her time at the controversial Gloriavale community – breaking down in tears as she recalled being hungry, stealing food and being refused dental treatment.
But despite all of that she stayed, the guilt of what would happen if she left too great for her to escape.
“No matter how hard life was, I can’t leave my work,” she said.
