With your valuable help in 2008 we received 1182 crisis calls & emails from 363 families (with 239 children) in 56 different countries. These crisis contacts came from:
45% from Europe
18% from the Middle East
In addition, we provided danger to safety relocation back to the USA to 7 families, provided legal representation to 6 families and provided housing to 4 families.
The donations that come in though Global Giving are at the heart of our mission and we would not be able to do the work we do without you. Thank you so much.
We are gearing up this month for our Minutes for Moms Campaign. Every phone call we receive on the international toll free hotline costs the organization between $1.00 to $4.00 per minute just in toll charges. Donations to our Minutes for Moms Campaign will go directly to pay these crisis line bills which are so critical to a vitims welfare.
We received calls from Guyana and Romania in the month of September which reflects that our outreach efforts are working. A big thank you to all of you who donate to us and recognize the value of our work!
With the addition of crisis calls received from battered American women in Iceland and Bosnia in July, we have now received calls from victims in 77 countries around the world. We have come a long way, but have so far to go. Thank you for your continued support in helping us expand and reach those in need in places as far away as Iceland and Bosnia.
