We are partnering with IEmpathize to help girls who have been rescued from the sex-trade in Eastern Europe. This short video features a good friend of mine and President, Brad Riley. Brad describes what happened while we were in Moldova, specifically the day we were surrounded by traffickers at "The Sex Cafe." Many of you have asked why this issue is so bad in this country. Here's some information from the State Department:
"Although formerly one of the most wealthy parts of the former Soviet Union, Moldova is today officially the poorest country in Europe. With nearly total unemployment, the registered daily income of 80% of the population is below a dollar per day. This fact can explain why desperate people sell their organs for money and sex trafficking is rampant. Moldovan prostitutes are now the countryâ€™s main export."
40% of Moldova's sex slaves are kids, and both the traffickers and the involved government officials know that children are highly sought after for the sex trade."
