Bree is being abused by her father, Alice's husband. Alice suspected for a while there was something going on. After coaxing, Bree finally disclosed to Alice that she was being sexually abused by her father. Alice immediately left the home and has gone into a safe house in the foreign country. We need to get Alice and Bree back to the USA for safety as soon as possible.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Battered American women and their children face tremendous obstacles getting back home to safety. Through generous donors we are able to provide danger-to-safety transportation via airline flights so they can seek safety at home in the USA.
How will this project solve this problem?
With this project, Holly and Bree will be able to flee back to the USA and be safe, away from the abuse.
Potential Long Term Impact
Each year we provide battered American women and children with information and services necessary to enable them to live their lives without violence. Since 2001 we have helped over 3000 women plus their children free themselves from abuse.

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Danger-to-Safety Relocation for DV Survivors. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
