Emergency Backpacks For Victims Escaping Violence

A microproject by Pathways to Safety International
Emergency Backpacks For Victims Escaping Violence

Our volunteers in Italy, France, Greece and Spain have already put together emergency backpacks for American battered mothers with children escaping violence. These volunteers are on stand-by to get a backpack to a victim in need. It may seem like a simple thing, but having a few basic necessities, some cash and a phone can make all of the difference in the world for a battered mother on the run with children. You have made that possible.

As a survivor of abuse in a foreign country, I remember a terrible night when I had to flee the house for safety. I had no money, no phone, nothing. There was no one I could call. No one to help me. I was forced to go back home and endure more abuse. I am happy that today, victims can call the international hotline and we can get them backpacks, a safe place to stay and begin to help them live their lives without violence.

Myself and the AODVC Team truly appreciate your support! Best wishes,Paula
