Helping families stay safe

It is my pleasure to update you on our ½ year progress in serving abused American women & children overseas. From January through June 2008, our advocates received 643 crisis calls & emails from 193 different families (123 of these families had 229 children) in 40 countries. We helped relocate 3 families back to the USA, paid 2 legal retainers to enable battered mothers to file for custody of their children, provided 2 free legal consultations with international custody attorneys, provided free counseling sessions with pro-bono professional counselors to 4 survivors and provided 3 families with housing and basic needs. Of the 193 different families, 53 involved Hague issues.

We truly appreciate the support of our growing Global Giving donors and want to thank you for believing in our mission.
