Maritza has always been known as a happy and bubbly young girl. Today, she doesn't want to leave the house..... Unfortunately I moved abroad 8 years ago and haven't seen my beloved sister for 6 years. I was shocked when I saw some pictures the other day and I can understand why she doesn't have the confidence to face anyone else! It hurts me seeing her like this - I can only imagine how she must feel.
Suffering with depression and having (unsuccessfully, thankfully) attempted to end her life, she's now stuck inside her room and too embarrassed to face the world. Albeit shocked to see the pictures, I'm extremely proud of her for opening up to the world a couple of weeks ago, asking for help.
We need to get Maritza back on her feet and get her to live life again. She has the sweetest little heart of gold and I know how much she loves other people, not least my own daughter! It will please me enormously to have her visit us but unless we can get her the necessary dental and medical treatment, it will remain a dream. However, nothing will please me more if we can bring her beautiful smile back, give her confidence to face the public and have a job again.
It's tough being 1000s of miles away from one's family but I hope with your support we can save this girl's life. Please, every donation will bring us a step closer to it, your contribution today WILL HELP.
