Statistics for 2008

With your valuable help in 2008 we received 1182 crisis calls & emails from 363 families (with 239 children) in 56 different countries. These crisis contacts came from:

45% from Europe 18% from the Middle East 9% Asia 26% Americas 2% Africa

In addition, we provided danger to safety relocation back to the USA to 7 families, provided legal representation to 6 families and provided housing to 4 families.

The donations that come in though Global Giving are at the heart of our mission and we would not be able to do the work we do without you. Thank you so much.
