This moving video was made before we changed our name from SAMM Abroad to Murdered Abroad, but the sentiment and the powerful messages still apply. Thank you to Always A Chance for creating this video and for supporting our work.


Murdered Abroad was previously called SAMM Abroad which was founded in 2001. 


Murdered Abroad exists specially for people in the UK whose loved ones are the victims of murder or manslaughter abroad.

We are a support group. We are also an action group, working for change within the UK to improve the support families receive after their loved one is murdered abroad.

Murdered Abroad is funded by donations and fundraising.

Murdered Abroad is an independent charity and is not funded by any Government office or agency.

Of all the consequences suffered as a result of crime, the anguish experienced in those cases where a relative is killed stands alone.
