Hostage US is proud to deliver its support to families and returning hostages free of charge.
You can help us to continue offering support to all families and hostages regardless of their personal financial circumstances by making a donation.
Our latest appeal
We know that the children of hostages suffer terribly during a kidnap. They struggle to understand what is happening, are unable to express their emotions, and their parents and other adult family members often struggle to know how best to communicate with them.
There are no resources that exist to help children and their parents to talk about what is happening in a safe way. We want to change that.
We aim to raise $75,000 to enable us to work with a child psychologist and children’s author to create an online story book to help children and their parents communicate about the kidnapping. This kind of resource has proven successful in handling many other difficult challenges.
The children of hostages suffer in silence. They desperately need care and support. We believe that support should start in the home.
Help us to raise $75,000 so we can create the resources that parents to deal with this scary and difficult issue.
Please donate today.
