Dealing with the practical challenges of a hostage taking or wrongful detention, including financial issues, managing social media and communications, can add to an already stressful situation for families.
Often, families experience financial problems because of the kidnapping or wrongful detention. Your family may be impacted by the loss of your loved one’s income and your ability to earn an income. You may need to cover your loved one’s costs while in captivity and more.
Raising funds from family, friends, and the community is something many families in your situation face. Hostage US is here to help you problem solve. We’ve created a fundraising toolkit and suggestions on when and how to share your story on social media.
