Charity to help Cleveland kidnapping victims raises more than $650,000

The three women rescued after being held captive in a Cleveland house for about a decade say they are doing fine.

That was the message in a letter released by their attorneys on Tuesday that also noted a charity fund to help the women has now raised more than $650,000.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that attorneys who are representing Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight for free say the women are "happy and safe and continue to heal, a process that requires time and privacy."

They escaped from the home on Cleveland's west side May 6.

A former school bus driver, 52-year-old Ariel Castro, has been charged with three counts of rape and four counts of kidnapping, including Berry's 6-year-old daughter fathered by Castro.
