The Problem: Trafficking
HOW LONG WILL WE WAIT? How long, LORD? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me? Psalm 13:1
Human trafficking is modern day slavery where people profit from the control and the exploitation of others. There are more people in slavery today than in any other time in history. Thousands of people from Romania and all over Eastern Europe are being exploited every year.
Over 40 million worldwide are being exploited for manual and sexual labor against their will. Romania is a gateway from Eastern Europe into the European Union for the export of young women and children. The ones being rescued from the grips of traffickers have no safe place to be rehabilitated.
