“ I want to take the time to thank each of you for the help and support that you have provided to me and my family during the hardest time of our life. I came to Ayuda nine months ago, lost, hurt, desperate and you guys helped me, comforted me, hugged me. I felt like I had a family standing beside me. You gave me back hope and strength to fight for my kids and put back a smile on my face.”
