Running for Freedom in Europe
People often ask me why taking this risk, why I got involved with the threat of human trafficking. Few, very few people really want to meddle in the noble task of ensuring the rescue of children affected by trafficking in Mexico.
The life for example of Flor and Fernanda, two sisters who had only 8 and 11 years old when they were used in child pornography, by her own mother. They arrived at Casa del Jardin broken down and hopeless. Today they are making huge progress and receiving counseling, education and medical care, but above all, found a family whose home today more than ever feel safe and very dear.
Like Flower and Fernanda, every year more than 20,000 children in Mexico are bought and sold in the sex trade. Our shelter Casa del Jardin offers hope to young girls and shows them that no dream is impossible to achieve. Like any girl, they dream about becoming doctors, lawyers or successful entrepreneurs. As we all wish for a better world.
"For those who choose to love rather than hate, hope instead of despair and happiness instead of sadness" ...
I invite you to run with me for freedom, through a donation, it will help to continue to support our girls providing them with a loving home, food, clothing, education, counseling and psychological assistance, as well as the opportunity to realize their dreams like any child or teenager usually does.
For the fifth time, I will race again the RUN TRANSALPINE GORETEX 2016, from 4 to 10 September, going through three countries. The starting point is Garmish, Germany, through Austria and ends in Italy, with positive altimetry accumulated up to 14,000 meters. I decided on this occasion to share so much love I have received, kindness, and generosity in my life with those who need it.
Running also means Freedom. Now my goal is to run for the welfare of these children. The girls of Casa del Jardin will be my wings to fly and win, to tell the world that they exist and deserve at least even a glance, some thoughts and more. I will run every kilometer with my heart for their freedom and therefore I invite you to accompany me.
Please donate what you feel is right to transform the lives of each of the girls from La Casa del Jardin.
Thank you very much! Your friend,
Maria Luisa Madueño
