GEMA – Shelter for abused and abondoned women


GEMA Abused and Abandoned Women and Children Program – Jaltemba Bay, Nayarit, Mexico

Women from the Jaltemba Bay Area of Mexico (north of Puerto Vallarta) who have been abused or abandoned rely solely on this program as there is no other resource– private or government funded — available.

Current Shelter

GEMA provides a safe haven (in a secret location for safety) to learn the necessary skills that will lead to establishing a stable life for themselves and their children. Eighty-three women and well over 100 children have gone through the program since GEMA’s inception in May 2017 and 19 women and their children have been rescued from emergency situations and sheltered at GEMA.

The Mexican couple who established and run this program rely on donations and their own money (from the small salaries they earn) to cover all expenses.

At this time they are in desperate need of funding to finish construction on a proper shelter for the women and their children before the onset of the rainy season.

New shelter under construction

Any financial assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated. And please pass on this information. Help us spread the word.

Thank you! Gracias!
