Ricky Martin has lended his support to the SABERA Foundation that will soon be launched in the U.S. by Melanie Griffith, Penelope Cruz and Esther Canadas. The non-profit organization is committed to changing the lives of street children and on improving the difficult situation faced by both widows and women who have been abandoned by their husbands.
“From 1984-1989 I had the opportunity to be an international ambassador for peace and work with various charity organizations around the world. Just a few weeks ago, I traveled to the Kalitala home that the SABERA Foundation has created in Calcutta. The difference between the children that I worked with before and the girls in Kalitala is the amount of love that I saw in their eyes, which is a direct result of the affection and love that they are receiving on a daily basis from the people at the foundation,” said Ricky Martin. “In Kalitala, the SABERA Foundation has created a universe that is a part of our universe, but different from ours in that in Kalitala, you can only find respect, love and lots of prosperity. It is an honor to work with the SABERA Foundation as they continue to dedicate their efforts to improving the lives of the girls in India. Hopefully this is only the beginning of what the SABERA Foundation will achieve around the world.”
