Tamara called us from Thailand earlier this year. She had been living in Thailand with her husband and son Owen for six months. When her husband got an overseas assignment she was hesitant to go. He had been verbally abusive and sometimes she was afraid of him. Her husband assured her Thailand would be a new start for their marriage and family.
The first couple of months in Thailand seemed fine, but then her husband started insulting her again, calling her names and making phyical threats. When Tamara told him she wanted to go back home to the USA, he hid Owen's passport and told her he would cancel her dependence visa if she left.
We worked with Tamara on a safety plan and an escape plan. Over time Tamara was able to find Owen's passport. Because of donors like you we were able to secure a taxi and airline tickets to get Tamara & Owen home while her husband was at work.
They are now back home in the USA happy and safe! Thank you!
