Please Help Carter and Lily Flee Home To The USA!

A microproject by Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center


Lily has been experiencing abuse from her American husband in Vietnam. When she called us earlier this month he had "punished" her the night before by not letting her feed Carter dinner because she did not call him at the time he had specified when she went out shopping. Lily asked us to help her and Carter get home.

American women like Lily and their children like Carter need assistance to flee home to the USA to escape abuse abroad. Lily is terrified the abuse of Carter will increase if she does not get out of Vietnam. We need to get them airline tickets so they can fly home to be with Lily's parents.


Lily and Carter will be able to safely home to the USA and stop any further abuse. Lily and Carter can live with Lily's parents while Lily gets settled and gets a job.

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.
