A woman sexually abused by her foster father for many years says she was abandoned by Anglican Social Services which placed her in care.

The 58-year-old witness, Ms M, has given evidence to the Royal Commission into Abuse in Care in Auckland.

She was seven when placed in care along with her older sister.

M and her sister were sent to the foster family for a six-week holiday but it ended up lasting much longer.
