Battered mothers and their children escaping violence often need a hotel for one night while we assist their escape from the foreign country back to the USA. This project will provide a one night's stay and food for 20 victims and their children in 2018.
When battered mothers flee an abusive home with their children they need a safe place to stay while one of our case managers helps them get airline tickets home. Getting into a shelter in a foreign country on a moments notice is nearly impossible.
This project will provide 20 battered mothers fleeing violence with their children one night in a hotel and food to assist in their escape in 2018.
The project serves 500 women per year empowering them to find alternatives to a life of violence so their children grow up in violence free homes with their self-esteem in tact with the hope of stopping the cycle of violence in future generations.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Help Rescue 500 Battered Women And Their Children. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
