We rely on the generosity of individuals and organisations to deliver its vital services. Please give what you can.
Without you our families and former hostages would be unable to access the dedicated and professional support needed to help them through their ordeal and overcome the unique challenges they face.
We are always interested to hear from people around the world with specific skills who may be able to support us as volunteers:
We’d also love to hear from people and organisations who would like to fundraise for us. We are an independent charity whose work depends on the generosity of individuals and organisations, both financially and in kind.
There are lots of fun ways to help raise money for us, from taking part in a sporting challenge to organising local a cake sale or an online challenge.
As such a niche charity, we couldn’t reach as far as we can in delivering our support without the help of our pro bono supporters. If your company would like to support us, please get in touch.
If you would like to get involved to help Hostage International please get in touch.
Your support enables us to provide a range of services to former hostages – and those arbitrarily detained – and their families free of charge. We also assist organisations to improve their support to employees and their families in the wake of a kidnap or arbitrary detention, and we work discreetly to encourage governments and employers to improve understanding around the plight of hostages’ families and returning hostages.
Hostage International has supported hundreds of families across the world with issues such as government liaison, emotional and mental health support, supporting children, health and dental assessments, handling the media, legal and financial services.
One beneficiary highlighted the support given by Hostage International:
“Hostage International does not have an enviable task when faced with distraught families but they are prepared to stand by you with deep commitment, tolerance, compassion and rock-solid sense.”
Hostage International is grateful to the organisations and people who give their time, expertise and resources on a pro bono basis to strengthen our organisation and provide vital services to the families and former hostages we support. Our partners include:
