Hostage International relies on the generosity and hard work of many individuals and organisations. They donate. They give their time. And they connect us to other amazing people. Get involved – and help us to further our mission of supporting hostages and their families.

Hostage International provides support, guidance and professional services to families going through one of the most painful and difficult experiences – having a loved-one kidnapped. Hear more about how we help and why our work matters.

volunteer You can volunteer for Hostage International. Maybe you are a doctor, nurse, dentist, mental health professional, financial advisor, or lawyer and could give a few hours a month to help a family or hostage in need? Maybe you have time to help Hostage International organise an event or send out an appeal? Maybe you are a student and could help us to locate new research and resources on kidnapping and its impact on families and hostages? Or perhaps you are a former hostage or family member and you would be willing to speak about your experiences at one of our events?

Hostage International is able to help because good people give their money, time and expertise. Get in touch – and get involved!
