Project Report | Mar 14, 2024
You helped Disha and Mom Mira!

By Paula Lucas | Founder

When Mira contacted us by crisis email earlier this year she was exhausted from the physical and emotional abuse of her husband abroad. Most concerning was Mira's fear that her daughter Disha would grow up thinking it was okay for daddy to hit mommy. Then she would accept a man hitting her when she grew up.

Mira had no idea what to do. We had multiple email exchanges with Mira over a couple of months safety planning and explaining the options she had and the possible outcomes.

Mira began to document the abuse, she reported the abuse to the American Embassy and began to slowly pack important documents and belongings. She finally disclosed the abuse to her parents who have been supportive in her efforts to flee home and helped in the scenario of why Mira needed to return to the USA urgently with Disha.

Mira is back home in the USA now with Disha. Her abusive husband believes she is just visiting for an emergency but she does not plan to return abroad. Mira has already consulted with an attorney and plans to file for emergency jurisdiction and custody of Disha.

Disha is happy playing with her new toys and being spoiled by her grandparents!

Without your donations we would not be able to carefully safety plan and provide ongoing guidance and support to American victims of domestic violence in foreign countries and help them find a path home.

Thank you for supporting our mission!
