Project Report | Apr 21, 2023
You helped Mandy!

By Paula Lucas | Founder

When Mandy agreed to move abroad with her partner, things weren't going very well. Her partner was verbally abusive sometimes and would get angry over small things.

But Mandy's partner convinced her that things would be better in a new country. They would be able to have a new start. She promised Mandy that she would treat her better.

Mandy always wanted to live in in a Europe country. Her employer agreed to her working remotely as a digital nomad. She secured her visa and joined her partner abroad The first few months they were busy settling in and they were happy, like when they first met.

Unfortunately, it didn't last. Soon her partner's verbal abuse and angry outbursts re-emerged. She threatened Mandy with violence if she tried to leave.

Mandy emailed our crisis advocate to discuss her options. She didn't want to leave Europe but she did want to end the relationship. She wanted to do this carefully so her partner would not discover her plans.

Our crisis advocate helped guide Mandy through the process of safely exited the relationship.

Mandy still lives in the country but relocated to a different town. Mandy is so grateful that she had someone to speak to confidentuially to help her navigate to safety and avoid a potentially violent outcome.

We want to thank you for helping LGBTQ victims of violence abroad!
