TESTIMONIAL

09/16/2021

 

Dear Medicine Wheel Ride Organizers;

 

I want to take a moment to thank you for your assistance your organization provided when my niece was in trouble and on the run from a pimp. My younger sister and cousin (niece's Mom) left for XXXXXXX to meet her. She was in XXXXXX but her friend found her and took her to XXXXXX and sent the address to my cousin so they were able to find her without delay.

 

They picked her up and turned right around and brought her home, safe. Now the healing and recovery begins.The sad thing about these situations is the pimps give them drugs, they become addicted to them and my niece was unruly on the way home. But safe.

 

So I want to thank you for your help.
