Message to our Dear Volunteers
Altruism is human conduct that consists of giving disinterested attention to others, even when this diligence is against our personal gain. Altruism is the opposite of selfishness. The altruist, therefore, tries to seek the good of others, without caring about themselves. This person makes some personal sacrifices to provide benefits to others. Empathy and ethics consist of two of the fundamentals of altruism because one needs to put themselves in another’s place, understanding what they are going through and acting accordingly. Within this definition and considerations about altruism, I want to emphasize the importance of recognizing and honoring people’s altruistic attitudes and especially, the encouragement of this altruistic behavior in society through our actions. Directed by this perspective, I would like to publicly express my most genuine gratitude to all who are experiencing the practice of altruism and engaged in this work of awareness and education to prevent and combat human trafficking and child sexual abuse and exploitation. To everyone who voluntarily comes in some way by offering material, financial and emotional support in a genuinely altruistic way. Thank you very much to all our dear volunteers. May God powerfully bless your precious life!
