You helped Allison

Allison was traveling in the Far East with her partner on a two week trip. While they were out one night they met up with some other Americans at a pub next to their hotel for some food and a couple of beers.

She doesn't remember much of that night. Allison woke up the next morning in another hotel room alone, naked and bruised. She was terrified. She knew she had been drugged and sexually assaulted.

Allison called our international toll free hotline. We were able to help her get oriented, call the police, get medical attention and get her reconnected to her partner who had also been drugged but had not been sexually assaulted.

We connected Allison to a counselor in her town in the USA and she continues to call the hotline for support. She has a long way to go but we are so glad we were there for her in her darkest hour.

Thank you from Team Pathways for helping American LGBTQ victims of sexual assault abroad!

You helped Hannah

Hannah was volunteering in Costa Rica on a sustainable coffee farm. She was so excited to be learning organic farming and loved the country, the land and its people.

One night an unknown man snuck into her room with a knife. It was dark so she could not see his face. Hannah was terrified as he held the knife to her throat and sexually assaulted her. When he ran off Hannah layed in bed paralized from fear that he may return.

In the morning she called our hotline. Hannah didn't want to make a police report but did request we help her get medical attention. We were able to get her to a nearby clinic.

Hannah decided not to go back to the farm and wanted to come home. We helped her change her ticket and assisted her with logistics.

Thank you from Hannah and Team Pathways for helping American victims abroad.

Clickitty has a home because of you!

Clickitty is so happy to be safe and sound with human mom Tamra after a harrowing escape from Israel. Tamra desperately needed to escape abuse from her husband but had no way of getting Clickitty home too.

Because of donations like yours, we were able to get funds to Tamra to get Clickitty to the vet and for an in-cabin cat carrier.

They are both doing well and have settled into their violence-free life back home in the USA.

If Clickitty could talk we are sure he would be saying "You are the cat's meow"!

Thank you so much from team Pathways!
