Please help victims escaping buy diapers & formula

A microproject by Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center

Summary

Getting victims from danger to safety often means battered mothers flee without much more than the clothes on their backs. They often don't even have enough diapers or formula with them for more than a day.

Challenge

Fleeing mothers with children often don't have the means to buy even basic necessities. Diapers and formula are critical.

Solution

With this project 10 mothers will be provided with $50 of diapers and formula as they are escaping violence.

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.
