1) Young university student in Peru risks losing direction of her life

I’m 18 years old, studying in one of the best universities in Peru, and I’ve found out that I’m pregnant. I don’t have the income to mantain a child, and the father refuses to believe the baby is his because “he didn’t cum inside me”. I’m desesperate and fear for my future a lot, and I feel alone, even though I’m supposed to be happy for having a baby. My parents can’t find out or they’ll kick me out of their house and all my dreams will be ruined. I really need help.
