This mission team will travel to one of the poorest countries in Eastern Europe, Moldova, to partner with Justice and Mercy International. Situated between the Ukraine and Romania, the Republic of Moldova is known for the amount of orphans and the epidemic of human trafficking within the country.
JMI is an organization dedicated to changing lives by confronting global injustice. In Moldova, the organization partners with two transitional homes, Grace House and Boys2Leaders. Both of these homes serve as a safe place to live and learn for the teenagers that have graduated from Moldova's orphanages at age 16. These two homes can host the teens until they are 21, providing them with life skills, education, and safety.
While in Moldova, the team will spend time offering hope by building relationships through service to the young men and women of Grace House and Boys2Leaders. We will also be hosting an after school program in a local village for children and teens.
