the murga runaways ceded to Jennifer de la Rosa, Hugo’s mother, part of her time for her performance in the Final of Murgas de Santa Cruz so that she could beg, once again, for decent housing for her son.
On July 13, the life of 16-year-old Hugo and his family changed radically. He went out in the afternoon with his friends from El Sobradillo and they took the bus to enjoy the sea in Puertito de Güímar, however, when he dived there was little height and he hit the bottom. At that time he suffered a blow that left him a quadriplegic, with a very complex C4 spinal cord injury.
Her life changed, as did that of Jennifer de la Rosa, who today repeated that she had to quit her job to dedicate herself to her son, Hugo, who has asked “on several occasions for euthanasia” but wants to “keep fighting.”
For this reason, Jennifer asked the Government of the Canary Islands and the Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council for “a solution now” for “decent housing” and that, “at once” they pay attention to her request.
Going up to Hugo’s mother, who needs adapted housing and the institutions pass, and the @NeitherManyNeitherFewto those who left without farewell, the @MurgaDesbocados demonstrates a human level that has no comparison.
