Thank you for the message. It means a lot for us, for staff and the safe house residents.

They are so energetic, so supportive and when I read the message I think of you just beside me.

You are far away but always with us; always your heart is with us and supportive and thinking about us.

Thank you very much for everything you are doing to support us. Thank you.
