Project Report | Jan 29, 2016
You helped Robin escape abuse!

By Paula Lucas | Founder & Executive Director

Robin was living with her same sex partner in the UAE. As her partner became more abusive, Robin told her that she wanted to end the relationship. Her partner threatened to go to the authorities and out her as being gay even if it meant that both of them would go to prison.The UAE is an Islamic country. Robin was terrified.

Robin called the international hotline. Her partner controlled all of their money and she didn't want to ask her family for money. They don't know she is gay.

We were able to get an airline ticket for Robin to come back home to the USA. She is doing really good. She is sad that her relationship is over but she is a resilient young woman and is moving forward.

Your donations to help LGBTQ victims of violence overseas are lifesaving! Thank you so much! The AODVC Team
