"It brought me to tears to see all the letters that Amnesty International had collected. It makes me feel stronger when I know there are so many people who trust in me, my father, and my family."
"You do not know us, we do not know you, but you have been with us from the beginning and you fight for our liberation. What Amnesty International does, even our relatives did not. We will be forever grateful to you for that. You give us the strength to continue day after day and not to give up. It's not easy but we're holding on. May God bless you and continue to assist you in all that you do. Thank you for everything."

"I am grateful that I am not alone. I have the support of so many people from all around the world, from many different countries. Keep on supporting, helping, and not just me, ok? Because in different areas of Peru there are many women suffering from this kind of ill treatment, all kinds of abuse. Support them all. The position I am in, as a humble peasant farmer woman, there are others in this position in other places. Thank you for everything."
"The moral support from Amnesty International has helped us gain confidence in our fight."
"I want to thank you, humbly and with a full heart, for your unwavering advocacy and support. More than a million of you came together to say in one voice that the truth matters. My gratitude is beyond expression."
As these heartfelt thankyous show, your words touched – and, yes – changed lives, too. Thank you!
