Weekly food baskets for a month for one family
Every week we receive approximately 30 families in the Martisor drop-in center for activities and for distribution of food baskets. With the pandemic and the inflation, our beneficiaries presented an increased economical vulnerability and their basic needs like food must been covered. Through food baskets we connect with them, we invest in their lives offering counselling and courses. It’s our most impactful program.
Every year, we publish a booklet with testimonies of girls who have overcome prostitution, pornography and sex trafficking. They are real stories of hope. We give around 300 books each year in different cities. We have received each time a great feedback from the girls who read them.
