Martha sends Christmas wishes to everyone

Martha makes two phone calls a day and gives Christmas wishes to closest people. As for now she wasn’t able to call every person she has on her contact list. She will probably call some of them just after the Christmas.

Martha asked us to forward her most cordial wishes to everyone.
She remembers about everybody. And she thanks everyone (she managed to say so much).

It’s the second Christmas that Martha “spends” without her family and close ones. For her family and friends this is not an easy time either.


Martha is worried about her family bearing big financial costs

One of the phone calls with Martha, regarded Martha’s concerns, that her family bears big financial costs involving her case.
Currently an appeal to the Supreme Court is under preparation, talks are being held with solicitors and the family is preparing to direct the matter to the European Court of Human Rights.

Martha wants to support the actions of the family.
Probably the paintings Martha painted and those which she will still paint, will go to the auction.
Money gathered this way will go to the ALFA Foundation’s account, on which funds for legal fight in defence of Martha are collected.

Creating the paintings is time consuming.
She can to that only during the classes of school she attends to. Only 2 hours a week.
Practically this means that one painting is created for over 2 or 3 months.

Every effort makes her closer to achieve the goal which is FREEDOM.
