30.01.2020 Reflections by Fr. Shay Cullen, - Buying Preda Dried Mangos Can Save and Heal Abused Children

The great success of the Preda child rescue and healing program is that so many girls aged from 5 to 17 overcome with courage the trauma of abuse and exploitation and go on afterwards to have successful happy lives. When you buy Preda mangos you help them.

Each one is a success story. A hundred children every year have been saved and healed since 1996. The abuse they suffered is a shocking tragedy and crime but they recover thanks to the intensive but effective healing they receive in the affirming and encouraging family environment at the Preda Home for Girls.

There are as many as 45 girls at any given time in the home and 107 over twelve months. They are reintegrated after about a year to a safe family or relatives and Preda then provides aftercare services and they continue to fight their court case against their trafficker or abuser. Many succeed. In 2019 with the support of the Preda legal office, there were in all twenty convictions. Most abusers and traffickers were given life in prison where they will abuse no more children.

Everyone knows it is a challenge to bring up a family even of a few children nowadays. At Preda, we care for 45 girls at any given time and an additional 40 boys 10 to 15 years of age rescued from inhuman and cruel detention centers. Preda spends at least €230 or £195 a month per child. We are always striving to see they continue to get the best unique care and service from the 56 professional Preda staff.We need your help and support to continue by way of your donations to the Preda Children’s Homes. You can donate through the Columban Fathers or by Paypal or direct to our bank account in Ireland.
