Jason called us after he experienced a sexual assault in Costa Rica. Jason was teaching English in Coast Rica. After a class, one of the men asked for private tutoring. Jason invited the man to his apartment for coffee and a tutoring lesson. Jason thinks the man put something in his coffee. He didn't remember anything from the time he started tutoring until he woke up in excrutiating pain in his bed.
We were able to get Jason to a hospital and pay for his medical treatment and prophylactics. Jason called the police and made a police report. We put Jason up in a hotel for a couple of nights since he didn't feel safe going back to his apartment.
Jason has a long journey ahead. Because of donations like yours he is safe and getting the help he needs.
