Your Support Helped Margret Escape Crisis!


Margret and Varad met online, Varad was quite charming to Margret who had a shy personality. After two and a half years of talking to each other every day and one visit from Varad to Ohio where Margret lived, Varad convinced Margret she must come to Jaipur, India.

Margret and Varad’s relationship was exciting and new, Margret could not resist visiting Varad in India. However, as soon as Margret arrived Varad seemed to be a different person. Her visit was not like how she imaged it would be at all. Varad was not the kind person he pretended to be, he sexually assaulted Margret the very first day she was there. She was heartbroken and terrified of Varad, she called a SASHAA case manager as soon as she was able. SASHAA arranged a ride to the airport as well as help her change her flight back to Ohio as soon as possible. SASHAA connected Margret to a sexual assault program in her hometown and continues to provide a counselor to Margret.

Without the support of our donors we wouldn’t have been able to assist Margret in her time of crisis.

Thank you for allowing us to do this work!
