Because of your donations to our Danger to Safety Relocation for DV Survivors, Karen and her baby daughter Kyra, will spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with their family in the USA this year. Safe and away from abuse. Karen and her daughter fled abuse from Australia.

We can't thank you enough for believing in our mission and our team.

We also wanted to let you know that we have a Gift for Good featured on the Global Giving website in support of our danger to safety project. Check out our beautiful hand blocked pillow case from Jaipur, India for someone on your shopping list.

Fourteen families are at home so far this year, in the USA, safe, away from the chaos of the violence they have suffered for years in foreign countries. And you helped!

It is hard to explain the desperation of a domestic violence victim wanting to return home to the USA for safety. Danger to Safety relocations take months, sometimes years, to orchestrate. Here is a quote from one of the battered mothers: "I think you were sent to me by God. I know I can never repay you for all you did for me and my baby to keep us safe, but one day, I will try. Thank you for all that you do."

We would like to thank you for supporting our program so families can seek safety at home!

Dear Friends and Supporters of AODVC,

During the first 6 months of 2012, the Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center has helped 254 survivors of domestic violence. We have received 1,101 crisis communications from 44 countries worldwide and provided the following services:

  • 7 Danger to Safety Relocations
  • 14 Legal Consultations
  • 3 Legal Retainers
  • 6 Counseling Services
  • 13 Emergency Assistance and Basic Needs

We received the following quote from Sally who was living in Uzbekistan,

“I was fearful for my life on a daily basis. I never thought I would be able to escape the horrific abuse until I called the Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center. Because of them, I was able to escape and I am now living a life free from violence.”

It was because of your support that we were able to help Sally and the 253 other victims that contacted us this year. Thank you for your donations!

Dear Friends,

As Mother’s Day is fast approaching, let’s take a moment to honor all the mothers in world. They give life, love, and support. One of the biggest crimes against humanity is abusing these incredible women. This Mother’s Day, please make a donation to mothers that are victims of domestic violence worldwide.

Since January 1, 2012, AODVC received 589 crisis calls and helped 77 mothers in violent and dangerous situations, providing case management, safety planning, danger to safety relocations, counseling, and legal assistance. Your donation can help a mother escape from violence overseas and rebuild her life, and the lives of her children, in a healthy, happy environment.

AODVC's Lead Case Manager received the following in an email from a victim in Rome, 

“Thank you so much for all your help in my escape with my children. We would never have been able to leave without your thorough safety plan and legal assistance."

Please give to a mother and children who are victims of domestic violence. Your donation will make a difference.

Dear Friends and Supporters of AODVC,

The first quarter of this year has been extremely busy. The phones are ringing off the hook and our case managers and international advocates are working tirelessly providing safety planning, advocacy, case management and connecting survivors with legal resources and counseling. Since January 1st, 2012, AODVC has received 325 crisis communications serving a total of 56 victims of domestic violence. In the past 10 years we have received 13,500 crisis calls, emails & live chats, serving 2,904 victims of domestic violence in the Americans overseas community.

In addition to crisis management, AODVC conducted outreach in Istanbul, Turkey, Diyarbakir, Turkey, and Rome, Italy during the first quarter of 2012. We connected with US Embassies, local women’s organizations, and American women’s clubs overseas.

As our outreach is translating into an increase in crisis calls, please donate to AODVC today to help a victim of domestic violence and their children escape horrific abuse. Thank you for your support.
