Moldova cannot move forward until it solves several major issues. Transnistria functions almost as a separate state (with support from Russia), and makes the country unstable. It has become a centre for organized crime and smuggling. The depressed economy forces 1 out of every 4 people to seek work outside the country. Moldova has the largest proportion of women lured abroad into human trafficking rings. Many people struggle with alcohol and drug abuse. Pray for a government that wisely and effectively addresses these devastating challenges.
