Moldova–a small and relatively unknown country, yet full of human potential with a dynamic culture.

Tragically, this country holds the notorious title as a major source for human trafficking, which means that many individuals can go to and from Moldova and traffic people to other countries abroad.

One cause for such trafficking includes the region’s extreme poverty, producing economic hardship for citizens. This small, former Soviet country currently ranks as a Tier 2 watch list country for human trafficking in a persons report issued by the U.S. State Department. This country ranked as Tier 2 until 2008 when it dipped to a Tier 3 country, but since then, it has raised its ranks by the increase in number of human trafficking victims.

A national committee development led by the Prime Minister lead law enforcement training to identify victims so they can send them to government funded assistance centers.  The most notable of those who remain unpunished for human trafficking include corrupt government officials.

Women and children continue to live their lives as objects bought, sold, and taken to the Gulf States, Western Europe, or the Moldovan capital of Chisinau. The Moldovan men also  live a harsh reality through arduous, forced labor.

Poverty makes corrupt government officials ignore the problem, while criminals exploit their country’s children. Dire penury also leads a disillusioned 18 year old boy to foolishly believe that the factory job he has can make his Moscow life better.

People need to know that Moldovan parents can turn their own daughters into slavery to feed their family. This country represents a land so poor that a promised job will have no proof of actual employment. Appallingly, Moldova has such a dire poverty, villagers have to sell their kidneys so they can buy enough food to eat for a week.

Sadly, Moldova, stands as a low income country where criminals exploit victims to the harsh realities of human trafficking. Instead of improving the living standards of Moldovan citizens, this practice only brings more misery and destitute to them.

Human trafficking must end now!
