If you’re on our email list, you received our winter update this afternoon (read it here). Designing our newsletters every few months is one of my favorite parts of being at Love146. The stories from our programs that I get the privilege of sharing and illustrating move me so deeply; it’s hard to make it through a day of designing with dry eyes. The words from Remy, a girl in the Love146 Round Home, from this winter’s update were some of the most profound and lovely. This morning, we got an update from our Director of Asia Aftercare, Dr. Gundelina Velazco, about Remy and her journey. Since you’ve just been introduced to Remy, I wanted to share it with you…
“The Round Home has become a world of poems, songs, metaphors. When the girls are encouraged to think in metaphors, then they are able to take stock of their lives in a less hurting way.
As they do so, healing takes place because they are more able to accept themselves and in fact be proud of themselves and be happy about their life. This is a universe removed from when they first came, hopeless and depressed about their life and full of shame.”
-Dr. Gundelina Velazco, Director of Aftercare
