Amalia and her daughter are home because of you!

When Amalia moved to Greece with her husband and daughter Tara she thought it would be an experience of a lifetime. They had never been to her husband's homeland. He was happy to have found a job in Athens especially during a time of economic uncertainty.

The first few months went fairly well. Her husband was a difficult man. She wrote off his mood swings as part of their cultural differences.

The first time he hit Amalia she was holding Tara. She fell from the force, losing her grip on Tara who hit her head on the floor. Her husband apologized profusely as they rushed her to the hospital. Her husband made Amalia tell the doctor that she tripped, fell & dropped Tara. Luckily, other than bruising, Tara was fine.

Amalia promised herself that if he ever pushed her again, she would leave. Within one month, he pushed her again. This time he also hit her. Amalia called our hotline. Withing 10 days we were able to get Amalia and Tara safely home because of donations like yours.

Here is a note from Amalia: "I had no idea an organization like your existed until searched for help on-line. I am so thankful. I don't want Tara growing up thinking it is okay for a man to push or hit her. You are my angels!"

Thank you so much for helping Amalia & Tara!

The AODVC team.
