What we are fighting: Abandonment & Starvation
After a year or two of getting to know the BriBri community and gaining the trust of the women and girls on the reservation, I discovered a new group of individuals in desperate need of help.
These ladies are too old to be sexually used or too weak and old to work.
They live alone in the mountains with no one caring for them. No companionship or love. They struggle to get enough to eat every day.
There are little children who have been abandoned. Their fathers have discarded their mothers in pursuit of younger girls.
These single mothers don’t have the means to make enough money for food so the children are malnourished and hungry.
