Moldova Missions Trip 2019

When: October 31st - November 8th, 2019

Where: OM Moldova - Chisinau, Moldova

Why: You will have the opportunity to travel to the Republic of Moldova, Europe’s smallest and economically poorest country, which struggles with human trafficking. One-third of Moldovan children are considered “Social Orphans” as their parents have left the country to find work or struggle with alcohol addiction. Leaving children vulnerable to exploitation. 

OM organizes regular anti-trafficking conferences for vulnerable children and youth from the villages of Moldova who are largely unreached by education and awareness of this issue. The conferences address subjects such as manipulation, identity, reaching and achieving goals, puberty, alcohol addiction, etc. You will be helping at one of these conferences, organized for girls aged 11-14. 

Mission opportunities included on the trip: The team will spend 3 days assisting with the conference. They will be responsible for planning and leading games, crafts, competitions, befriending the girls and praying for them. Our OM Moldova Relief team is responsible for the moral and spiritual education program. In the days following the conference, you will travel to a village and visit some of the girls in their homes in order to see and understand the circumstances they are living in.

Cost: $850 USD Airfare is not included.
