Virginia Isaias

Life has unpredictable sacrifices and an overwhelming day-to-day violence. In addition to an inexplicable value to live despite abuse, through the theft of physical and mental purity by oppression. VIRGINIA ISAÍAS reflects on these hard experiences on the road to freedom through altruistic thoughts and a yearn for a better world. This concept is the idea of giving opportunities, tools, and education for every people who have suffered and hid.

What Our Women Are Suffering From?
What happened to one of them?

This is the story of Virginia Isaias

This is the story of Virginia Isaias who was born into a family of violence. In addition to being sexually abused as a girl by her father without her mother ever knowing it, Virginia lived with years of childhood domestic violence, adult intimate partner violence and a lack of support during difficult circumstances. Virginia suffered depression and suicide ideation. At the age of 15 her father offered her into marriage against her will.

As an adult and already a mother, Virginia was kidnapped for three months, by a network of human traffickers that traffic children and adults along with the smuggling of weapons and drugs. Kidnapped and tortured with her 6-month-old baby, Virginia lived through the unthinkable feeling the pain under her skin, straying from the purity of her mind and heart. The worst thing she had to live through was slavery, torture, and prostitution alongside other women, girls, and children. All were tortured in various ways and beaten without mercy until unconsciousness or dead.

 

In this place, Virginia could see how the blood of women, girls, and children was harvested to sell their organs on the black market. Her longing to live and protect her baby drove her to escape, but had failed the first two attempts, where she was recaptured and tortured. Virginia lived with a constant fear of losing her life, as she witnessed how the kidnapped youth and children were forced to practice prostitution in order to abstain from the torture that often ended in death.

 

In her desire to live and to be free, Virginia tried to escape for the third time, thus achieving freedom for her and her baby; thanks to her faith, hope, strength, and motherly love the now free, Virginia, recalls how exhausted and hungry she was as she walked in rags for hours with her baby wrapped in a rebozo (shawl) to reach the outskirts of the nearest town.

 

After escaping and trying to recover her life, Virginia’s experience of suffering left marks in her memory and in her being. She now shares her personal experience of torture and torment with others, this assists her in the restoration process as she works with survivors, despite there being a lack of resources available.

 

This lack of resources and the great desire to restore the dignity and humanity of the survivors, inspired Virginia to establish the Human Trafficking Survivors Foundation (FSTH) so that they do not live a life enslaved from their past and can share their great and immense joy of their new found freedom.

 

The history of Virginia is as strong as it is dark, and the reflection as admirable as it is radiant, since it reflects the courage, gallantry, struggle, and persistence that only a mother can have for the life of a child. It is something unimaginable and incalculable, since it represents the value of a mother when it comes to protecting and giving her all for a life that is not hers.

 

How many women like Virginia have we lost in this world? The planet not only loses a woman, but also loses a generations of families. This example of Virginia goes to show a woman’s worth through unconditional love and dedication; through the struggle and tenacity a woman endures by the sacrifices of life, to protect those she loves.

Virginia Gives A Message To Women

 

How many mothers today attack their children? They are shouted at, disqualified, criticized, censored, and even mocked. This is a reflection of the violence this mother endured during her lifetime. Unfortunately, this violence forces the woman to became an adversary to herself and her children. Knowledge makes us good at heart and useful to the world. The way to start is by loving yourself and treat each child with respect and love. In addition to love, you must care for your self-esteem, individual values, thoughts, feelings, and personal-taste. In order to take the first step, you must start today. This is one messages that Virginia gives to a world that needs caring homes and the desire to learn to love and communicate.

 

There are women who have suffered violence and do not have the happiness of being mothers. Therefore, they do not find the necessary reason to battle. These women are aggressive in word and quietly mistreat their body by seeking vices. However, if you are reading this, I want you to know that we need you, since we are just like you, we wish to unite as a family. Your inner self needs it, and we need you in the mission to help each other because it is time to be reborn with new opportunities.

 

Keep in mind that impurity violates the purity of the other. Purity is that of your being, which is as clean, pure, and undefiled as when you were born into the world.

 

The first action that needs to be take is to break the silence, to leave the darkness and embark on a path of change. This is the path where you will see your life reborn.

 

 

It’s Time to Break the Silence

It’s Time to Break the Silence
Virginia Isaias

 

Abuse and domestic violence have become the torment of thousands of adults and children who are mistreated in their own homes. Without having a solution to the atrocious abuse that happens in a home that lack love, an individual’s life goes through feelings of torture, anguish and desolation. This brings on insecure feelings that there is really not someone who is willing to help. This mental confinement destroys our value as a person, deteriorates our self-esteem and makes us believe that we are worthless. Often we do not want others to see our suffering, since we are afraid of contempt and incomprehension. This feeling takes us away from ourselves, we lose value in a life that we believe is without meaning.

 

Today I speak to you with total clarity, since I have already gone through what you are dealing with. The effects are so deep that only those who suffered from them know what it feels like. Keep in mind that thinking and feeling is the first step in making a difference in your existence, since nothing is a coincidence.

 

“Today I tell you that your life and your being are worth more than all the gold in the world.” If you are shining today, it is because that light that is in you is shining inside your heart. You are expressing that you love yourself and that you are looking for a solution. I know how difficult it must be and although it is complicated, it is not impossible to be reborn. If you are here today, it is because you have a purpose in life that is guiding you from the center of your heart. I used my heart to fight and achieve my freedom for me and my daughter.

 

When I left I found freedom, but I also found a lot of loneliness and helplessness in a new world to explore. Through learning, I found many other ways to live with my conscious through the transformation of my life. With the desire to believe that you can choose and become a person of understanding, I strengthened myself and became stronger.

 

When I found freedom, I knew that I was clean, pure, and without blemish. Therefore, I take leadership of my own life by speaking, thinking, and doing things for myself. This gave me the strength and courage to stand on my own in a new rebirth. If my love and my struggle made me break the silence, you can do it too.

 

Today, I am a woman of principles and values. I have studied and I work in a professional way in areas of health. I have been working for more than 10 years in social work, health and business. I also support youth and adults abused by domestic violence and trafficking of human beings.

 

I have seen the tears and suffering in people who are dealing with domestic violence, and out of that fear and shame they prefer to keep it quiet. However, I want you to remember that there are many of us who have these adversities. Let’s unite in a community by supporting each other by breaking the silence.
