Since 1999, Reaching Out Romania has worked with victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. During this time we have assisted over 470 victims, mostly Romanian women and girls who have been enslaved and abused in European countries. Victims are referred to us by the police, Child Protection Department and NGO’s from destination countries. However, when necessary, we organize the direct rescue of victims. Whilst they are in our care, we offer them a place of shelter as well as psychological, medical and legal assistance and make them part of our family. We shape our activities around the needs of this extended family and we provide everybody with long term assistance. We help many to initiate or continue their studies, to seek jobs or do whatever it takes for them to rebuild their lives.
