Thank you friends of AODVC

Dear Friends of AODVC,

   We cannot fully express our gratitude for your support and assistance on Global Giving throughout the years. Your encouragement and help has enabled the Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center to fulfill it’s mission of providing a lifeline of hope to the extremely underserved population of Americans abused abroad. We would not be here today celebrating our 10th anniversary, if it weren’t for you.

From the bottom of our hearts,

Thank you.

Below are three thank you cards that we have recently received. We wanted to share them with you as the message of thanks is meant for everyone who assisted the survivors. As a supporter of AODVC, the gratitude in these letters  is also meant for you. 

 

Morocco

Thank you from the depths of my heart for the assistance your organization has provided me. Throughout our communication over the last 10 months, you understood the trauma I was enduring, when many did not. Your advice was sound and practical and brought hope when I saw no light in the tunnel.

I continue to take practical steps to rebuild my life and heal, but the biggest obstacle has been overcome. I am back in the USA.

WE MADE IT!

We survived and now have a chance to thrive again.

 

France

Dear Angel,

   Thank you for your kind generosity and the love behind your gifts. This means so much to me and my son. After all we’ve been through, to have the resources to take action and get some safety and security- I cannot express how grateful I am. You truly are an angel. God truly does care for his children. Bless you and thank you again.      

  With humble and sincere gratitude.

 

Brazil

Thank you AODVC for the aid you provided my family during a very difficult time. Because of your assistance, we were able to come back to the US safely. Your support was invaluable to us.

Remember that the work you do is very important. There are others like me who can benefit from your kind words and assistance. Please know that I will always be grateful for all your help.

2010 Overview

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your continued support serving American overseas survivors of domestic violence.

In 2010, the crisis center received 2,289 calls, emails and live chats from 481 families in 68 countries. Of the families who contacted us for assistance, 210 of them had 383 children. The Hague Convention on International Child Abduction affected 94 of these families.

In an email message sent to our Lead Case Manager, a client stated the following:

“I really appreciate all your help! I know I keep saying thank you, but I really am just so grateful to have someone guiding me and helping me along this rough path.”    

She fled her abuser in Asia. We provided her with emotional support, legal referrals, information about the Hague Convention and counseling resources.

The services that we provide are, in large part, due to your support and donations. Thank you for helping American overseas survivors of domestic violence and their children.

Sincerely,

The Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center
