We are grateful to our expanding team of staff, volunteers and board members who use their talents every day, often under very stressful conditions, to impact the lives of thousands of American women, children and men abused in foreign countries. Our team works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on very complex issues and for that we are blessed.
While we won't have the exact statistics until January 2013, we have responded to a record number of pleas for help from Americans abused overseas in cases that seem to increase in intensity, complexity and possible lethality including pregnant women, forced marriage and honor killings. Without the contributions of donors like you it would be impossible to carry out our mission and for that we are thankful beyond words.
In 2013 we envision peace in every home. A world where no child has to experience violence in the one place they should feel safe. Where they will learn to love and be loved with their self-esteem in tact.
Warmest wishes to you and your family for 2013.
Paula, Noelle, Debra, Rachel, Lucinda, Jenn, Stephanie, Hannah, Zoe, Aspen & Vicki
P.S. We have multiple micro-projects on Global Giving that you may be interested in supporting before the end of 2012, where a small donation makes a big impact.
