Did you know that there are more slaves today than there have ever been in history?

Slavery has never been a thing of the past. Sadly these kids, left unprotected, become the main source for human traffickers. The Orphan’s Hands provides them with a safe home and a means to an education, which prevents these vulnerable young men and women from ending up in human bondage. With the support of people who care deeply, they have overcome against all odds. Today they are success stories with a deeply rooted compassion for the world that is manifesting in their daily life.

THE NIGHTMARE OF TRAFFICKING.

AT SIXTEEN YEARS OF AGE, A GIRL OR BOY “GRADUATES” FROM THE ORPHANAGE.

Their future is unknown as they walk away from the only world they ever knew, into a world of desperate uncertainty. They are given a bus ticket to a place they don’t know, merely because the name of the village is on their birth certificate. There is no one there who wants them… they are orphans. Standing at a bus station with nowhere to go, they become the perfect target for the trafficker.

At this moment they are at their most vulnerable point.

A fake job and a false promise easily lure them into the back seat of a car, and they will
be gone forever… a victim of what is referred to as a silent genocide of a generation:

Human Trafficking

It doesn’t have to end this way. WE have a choice. WE can save them…

MOLDOVA and the UKRAINE are primarily source countries for men, women, and children subjected to sex trafficking and forced labor.

Over 400,000 young girls have been trafficked from Moldova to Russia, the Ukraine and other countries in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and East Asia. Women and children are subjected to sex trafficking in Moldova in brothels, saunas, and massage parlors. Increasingly, girls ages thirteen to fifteen are victims of sex trafficking. The average lifespan of a child sold into human trafficking is three to seven years.

The highest-ranking source countries for human trafficking—piling up human trafficking statistics daily— include Belarus, the Republic of Moldova, the Russian Federation, the Ukraine, Albania, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Romania, China, Thailand, and Nigeria.

A human trafficker can receive up to 2,000% profit from a girl trafficked for sex.

The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 40.3 million victims of human trafficking globally.

The International Labor Organization estimates that forced labor and human trafficking is a $150 billion industry worldwide.

The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 4.5 million people trapped in forced sexual exploitation globally.

And to add to the depravity, Moldova ranks the second highest level of alcohol consumption in the world, with an average of 16.8 liters consumed per capita every year.
