Mayte needs to flee an abusive relationship. But there is more to the story. Mayte lost her son to a terminal disease a year and a half ago. It was a horrible sickness and she did her best to care for him while he slowly lost all of his abilities, and then died. Since his death she has been grieving and trying to move forward with her life.  She lives in Monterrey, Mexico

However, her abusive ex is now threatening her and following her. The police say they are unable to do anything, even though they have seen the bruises.  She is unable to leave her parents house because she is afraid.  She doesn't own a car and is afraid to walk, knowing that he could be waiting for her.  Her parents are unable to provide her with financial support because they have their own serious issues.  Her father recently had a heart attack and lost his job.  Her mother is caring for both her father, and their adult autistic son who is severely disabled.  It's a horrible situation.

What Mayte needs is to move and start her life elsewhere. She has filed for divorce from her ex. We are raising $1500 to facilitate her moving to a safe place, unknown to her ex, where she can get a job.

I am her Canadian friend Camara - who helped her with her son when he was sick.  I've done what I can to help her in the past.  The money donated to this campaign goes directly into Mayte's paypal account. 

Thank you for your help.  If you happen to know of a place and a job in Mexico for Mayte that would help too.  She's great with childcare / special needs care and has also done house cleaning, social media work, and has a bit of retail sales experience.
