From behind bars Martha Herda throws a challenge for Fergus O’Brien – “Let us both be examined with a lie detector” (video with english subtitles)

 

True friendship – now Martha from behind bars is supporting her friend Kasia

Two weeks ago, on Monday, Martha didn’t call to anyone from the family.
The family started to worry, if something happened.
And it happened..
But it was not about Martha…

It turned out, that a true friend of Martha – Kasia – was in need.
She needed some kind words and support.
The first person, who wanted to help her, and worried about her was… Martha…
…from behind bards… from far away…

All week Martha called her family very rarely.
All the time she was calling to Kasia.
Only with those short, six minutes calls she was uplifting Kasia.

We all wished Kasia well, and we were worried.
We’re wery happy, that presumably everything is fine now… If one can say that…

Nothing will destroy true friendship…
Always HELP others, because when you will find yourself in need, help can get back to you from least expected side.
Sometimes you don’t need much to effectively help…

Martha thanks from the heart to MP Liroy for his support

Already from the first day, when a short video of a Member of Polish Parliament Piotr Liroy-Marzec, Martha asked her family to play the video to her.
Although not quite clearly, but she heard him in a short phone call with family.
In the following days she also asked for playing it.

Martha asked the family for giving the MP her wholehearted thanks.
Martha thanks from the heart for all support she receives for MP Liroy.
Martha also appreciates, that MP who candidates for European Parliament, found the time to record a short video.

Martha will also thank MP Liroy personally on the first opportunity. Maybe during next phone call or maybe in person.

Martha’s family joins in thanks.
Additionally the family wishes to thank from the heart to MP Liroy for cheering Martha in an earlier phone call.
We will remember the words said by the MP to Martha: “Start getting used to polish food”.
Thank you.

WE keep our word – Thank You Mrs Governor Mary O’Connor

Beautiful photo. Three beautiful women. Mother and two daughters. All smiling.
All seemingly happy. Or rather – happy with the moment.
No one who would look, would probably guess, that the photo was taken in prison.
In Dochas Centre in Dublin, Ireland.

Three women holding together.
Martha in the middle of the photo.
In a black t-shirt with big Irish Red Cross logo on her chest.

On October 23,2018, Martha received a International Red Cross Volunteer certificate.
After the celebration one of reporters walked towards Martha and her family, and asked if she could take a photo. She walked only to them.
She cleared it with Mrs Governor Mary O’Connor.
She took a photo of three women, who were hugging each other all the time.

Mrs Governor said, that Martha will get the photo and she will be allowed to pass it to the family, if it will not be published on the Internet.

In last letter, Martha’s family received this special photo.
It doesn’t matter if we agree with the prohibition or not, or if we think that this prohibition is sensible or not:
WE KEEP OUR WORD
We thank Mrs Governor Mary O’Connor

In the same letter Martha attached a small heart-shaped candy:
“YOU’RE MINE”

Women remember best those flowers which they didn’t get – No flower… just one candy and back to the cell… – International Women’s Day in Dochas Centre in Dublin

International Women’s Day in Dochas Centre in Dublin, Ireland…
It’s next Women’s Day for Martha spent in prison…
Every time something different…

And now?
How did March 8, 2019, look like in Dochas Centre in Dublin, Ireland?

Short meeting in the gym…
…Women sang 4 songs…
…got one chocolate candy each and… back to the cell…

Some women in Dochas Centre was counting for something, and got nothing…
Including Martha.
She hoped at least for some flower…

Romantic and accustomed to some values and traditions, Martha made herself hearts from the modelling clay, and put them in her cell…

 

“I wish for Every Woman the eternal beauty in the heart…”

“I wish for all Women the eternal beauty in the heart
and for life to bloom colourfully.
That every woman could feel safe, cared for and loved…
…appreciated and fulfilled…”

A special phone, special memory …

“I will be grateful to you till the end of my life, and I will do everything for our family to be always strong and loving…”

My beloved, I want to thank You for your kind hearts. That you are with me and you give me your support. I miss You so much every day, but I am happy that I have someone I can miss. That 6 minutes of phone call every day for me is like a dessert after dinner 😉 I am very lucky that I have such love and that I have You. Some women here don’t have that and it’s very hard for them, so I understand their behavior. Because of You giving me so much strength, I can pass it to some of the women here.
I know how much sacrifice and torment all of this costs You, I can’t even imagine how can I repay you for such kindness. I will be grateful to you till the end of my life, and I will do everything for our family to be always strong and loving. It’s my greatest treasure. You and our close ones. What’s more important? For me the most important is that we can hear each other, see each other, touch. And someday we will do this aaaall together.
And this thought, thanks to You, helps me to survive everything here. Nothing more is important. Do not worry, I want you to be proud of me, and I will be strong!
Because I love life, always thanks to You, it doesn’t matter what it is, but I’m not alone in it.

Thank You!

Love You!

“I wish for you and your close ones…”

We have somewhat foreseen the problems with sending Martha’s wishes for the family and people close.
Simply, after those few years we don’t expect anything good from Irish prison Service.
(Of course if something good will happen, we will acknowledge that and we will thank for it)

Foreseeing it, we’ve asked Martha to make a list of people to which she sends letters, right after sending.
Now we publish Martha’s list.
