The Russian Mafia is a human trafficker of orphan girls in many Eastern European countries such as Moldova, promising them jobs as maids or cleaning women. Then they confiscate their passports, and ship them to other countries such as Turkey or the Netherlands to be slaves in the sex industry.
Because of New Hope, teenage orphan girls in Moldova now have true friends that helps them make the transition to adulthood. They learn social and basic living skills, such as making decisions as an individual, and how to handle finances and freedom. All of this is done within a Christian environment and connected to a local church family.
