“I would like to express my appreciation to VLMFSS. In my difficult family breakup you helped me to start my new life. [You] supported me in many ways. [You] showed concern, extended [your] emotional and practical support and assistance. Now I lead an independent life, and once again I wish to say – Thank you VLMFSS.”
