Help Survivors of Torture on Mother's Day

Help Survivors of Torture on Mother's Day


The vast majority of the women we help at ASTT are separated from their children on this Mother's Day. Though we cannot reunite them, ASTT can offer comfort and hope as they grapple with the emotional trauma and anxiety caused by this separation. Our clients needed to flee for their lives, leaving their children behind to come to our country. Your donation can make a difference in a mother's life today.

This Mother's Day, if you're a mom, you may get a drawing from your child. Or maybe you have plans to take your mother out to lunch. It's a special day. For all of the mothers who come to ASTT who are waiting for asylum, it is rarely, if ever, possible to celebrate Mother's Day.


You can make a difference now in a mother's life by participating in our Global Giving campaign today. ASTT will receive a 30% match during the month of May. That means if you donate $100, it will become $130, increasing your impact even more. In partnership with you, ASTT can provide care and healing to those who are seeking refuge in our country.

Long-Term Impact

ASTT has helped over 5,100 clients from over 80 countries. We help survivors heal from the emotional impact of human rights abuses endured at the hands of their governments. Mothers who find their way to our doors often struggle with the trauma of sexual assault and other abuses. They have asked others to care for their children and fled for their very lives. ASTT alleviates their psychological symptoms so they can lead fulfilled lives and obtain asylum, and then be reunited with their children.
