Help Sandrine Recover From Sexual Assault

A microproject by Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center


Sandrine and Cynthia were having the time of their life on a trip through Europe. One evening on the way back to their rental in Spain they stopped and had a glass of wine. Two men approached them and began flirting. When they told the men they were a couple, they left, muttering something under their breath. The men followed and forced their way into the apartment. One raped Sandrine while the other held Cynthia down and made her watch. We will be able to provide this couple with counseling.

Sandrine & Cynthia will be able to receive 10 counseling sessions at the sliding scale rate of $50 per hour.


Sandrine & Cynthia are desperately trying to get their lives back to normal after the assault. Counseling will help them recover from the horrible, life altering attack.

Long-Term Impact

We will provide extensive services to 30 LGBTQ victims of sexual assault, hate crimes and interpersonal violence while traveling or living in a foreign country. Services include danger to safety relocation, legal assistance, cash for immediate needs, counseling and long term case management. Case managers will help the victims navigate foreign systems safely preventing re-victimization.
