8-year old Lizeth* was living in the U.S. in terrible conditions. She was being abused by her mother and stepfather, who would not allow her to go to school. It was then discovered that her mother sent her back to El Salvador* with a woman she didn't know, and Lizeth's whereabouts went completely unknown.
ISS-USA took on the case and with the help of our in-country partners in El Salvador, were able to do a remote tracing and find Lizeth, who has been living with her grandmother and attending school.
Lizeth's grandmother, Doña Torres, who wishes to have custody of her, will participate in a wellness check so all parties are certain that Lizeth remains safe in the future.
