Mujeres por África joins the "Bring Back Our Girls" campaign to demand the release of the girls in Nigeria

Madrid, 12th May, 2014. The president of Women for Africa, María Teresa Fernández de la Vega, along with the ambassadors for the foundation, Xabi Alonso and Pau Gasol, have joined the global campaign Bring Back Out Girls to demand the release of the girls abducted in Nigeria by the terrorist group Boko Haram on 14th April.  

The ambassadors for the foundation, Xabi Alonso and Pau Gasol, have joined the global campaign Bring Back Out Girls to demand the release of the girls kidnapped in Nigeria by the terrorist group Boko Haram last 14th April.  

Pau Gasol has been photographed in his Twitter account with the hashtag that has spread around the world, accompanied by the text "We cannot tolerate these situations. Spread the word.” Xabi Alonso has also used the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls and illustrated it with a poster from the Stop Fistula campaign, which was made for this project by the foundation, posing next to a group of young women from Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The foundation is grateful to its ambassadors for joining in this campaign, acting as voices to denounce a crime against humanity whose solution requires a fast, concerted response from the international community, as the president of the foundation has stated recently in the media.

Maria Teresa Fernandez de la Vega said that "the abduction is a crime against global citizenship, against the 7 billion people who inhabit the planet," and that it violates the most sacred rights of all citizens: the freedom, education and physical and moral integrity of these girls.
