Harlow is recovering because of you!

Because of your generosity, Harlow has been able to get his American passport renewed. His STD test came back negative and he is so relieved. He has his new phone and he will begin counseling sessions next week.

Thank you for understanding how hard it is for Harlow as a gay American man that has been sexually assaulted in a foreign country. It is especially difficult because his parents don't know he is gay and he doesn't want any of his friends to know.

Harlow is a strong, resilient young man. We know he is going to be okay with support. Thank you again.

Sheila is home with Karma because of you!

You have given Sheila and Karma the best Christmas present ever! The gift of freedom from abuse! Karma wasn't very happy with having to be in a crate for so long on the airplane. But now, Karma is romping in the yard behind Sheila's friends efficiency apartment and playing with the next door neighbor's dog. Sheila is taking some time  to enjoy the holidays and take some time to rest and recover until the end of the year. Then she plans to hit the ground running looking for a job. The next door neighbors are retired and love Karma and have already offered to dog sit while she is at work.

Because of you Sheila and Karma are going to have a happy, abuse free life! Thank you so very much! The AODVC Team
