About the project
Moldova, one of the poorest countries in Europe, is a hotbed for human trafficking. Desperation, poverty, and lack of education make girls and young women vulnerable to traffickers who promise a better life, only to force them into slavery and prostitution.
The Nazarene church is committed to taking action against this atrocity and bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ. The church is taking a step forward in its fight inside the CIS region, which is a major exporter and importer of modern-day slaves, intertwining countries of origin and countries of destination for its victims. The church is taking a step of faith in starting an intervention ministry inside the country of Moldova. Through research and prayer, we have decided to address the need to identify victims of trafficking inside Moldova.
Through the mobile intervention clinic, we call victims through online ads, offer confidential surveys, and then provide free medical services. Medical professionals provide health checks, rapid HIV/AIDS tests, and other needed services. During each visit, our Christian staff provide not only for their physical needs but also their spiritual needs. The goal of our ministry is to identify victims and potential victims and point them to existing Christ-centered and holistic restoration centers located in the area, getting victims and their children, as well as potential victims, out of this danger zone.
By giving to the Mobile Intervention Clinic in Moldova, you will be facilitating our call as disciples of Jesus, who said in Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that the captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the Lord's favor has come.”
