International Legal Assistance for Abused Women

Nov 21, 2012

A legal victory for Terry and you helped!

Playing in Leaves
Playing in Leaves

Terry fled Greece, a Hague Convention country, with her kids knowing that her abusive husband would file kidnapping charges against her at home in the USA. Because of donations like yours, Terry was able to get an attorney that successfully proved Terry and her kids had been abused and would be safer at home. Today the kids are having fun playing in leaves and getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas, instead of living in fear of being sent back to Greece where they would have had to endure horrific abuse once again.

Because people like you care, Terry and her kids are safe.

We also wanted to let you know about our Gift For Good on the Global Giving website: a beautiful handmade pillow cover from Jaipur, India to consider for your holiday shopping.

Thank you for all you do to help victims in need with legal assistance! Warmest wishes, Paula
