In 2020 we officially created a non-profit entity as a resource space against sexual abuse called CRISÁLIDA, in Asturias, province of Spain.
"In Spain, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 7 boys will be sexually abused before the age of 18." (Unicef)
What we are not aware of is that 60% of abuses take place within the family, 35% by people from the environment close to the child. And only 5% for strangers.
"If I help one person to have hope, I will not have lived in vain." Martin Luther King
