Why is this project needed now?
“You Matter re-introduced my self-worth, I felt like a human being again. I feel really privileged – they are extremely giving. They have given me comfort and beauty.
The amount of help they gave me really touched my heart, it was really beautiful. They really paid attention to my personality, they created something that let me be me”.
