Holly And Her Daughter Bree Need To Get Home

A microproject by Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center
Vetted

Summary

Bree is being abused by her father, Alice's husband. Alice suspected for a while there was something going on. After coaxing, Bree finally disclosed to Alice that she was being sexually abused by her father. Alice immediately left the home and has gone into a safe house in the foreign country. We need to get Alice and Bree back to the USA for safety as soon as possible.

Challenge

Battered American women and their children face tremendous obstacles getting back home to safety. Through generous donors we are able to provide danger-to-safety transportation via airline flights so they can seek safety at home in the USA.

Solution

With this project, Holly and Bree will be able to flee back to the USA and be safe, away from the abuse.

Long-Term Impact

Each year we provide battered American women and children with information and services necessary to enable them to live their lives without violence. Since 2001 we have helped over 3000 women plus their children free themselves from abuse.
