Gems

Co-Founder


When I saw the t-shirt that Sevenly designed to raise funds for Love146 I immediately thought of Dr. Gundelina Velazco’s story of two gems. 

One girl is deaf and mentally retarded, the other has a mental disorder and is also mentally retarded. Both were trafficked on the streets in the Philippines when they were very young.  Both are now in the Round Home. 

They have found a friend in each other. On days when there is no school they hang out at the door of Dr. Velazco’s office. They hang out talking from morning until evening, only breaking for meals and scheduled activities. 

“…one could see that beneath the brokenness caused by exploitation by other people, there is the core of kindness, thoughtfulness, and sweetness –  rare finds in the world they came from. I feel privileged every time I am touched by their humane core and wonder how could other people have done what they did to these children.” 


 

“They are like gems that shine in the dark, like the moon that gives light in the night.”
