6 Month Progress Report

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!
