Kira was born in a small Moldovan town in a very poor family with many children. They constantly fought for survival. Poverty and family quarrels eventually brought them to the point where the parents divorced. From this moment on their life became even harder. Tired of never-ending poverty and humiliations, Kira left school at 13 years old and went to look for a job. “I wanted to become free and independent, to find a better life than what I had at home. However, everything was more difficult than I thought. I tried to find any job I could but without education, experience and professional skills nobody wanted to hire me…”

I finally found a  real paradise on the earth for me – it is Psychological Art Studio (PAS). Every coming here, I receive the most precious what exists on the earth, true peace and harmony, and simple human warmth.

PAS - is a place where I always want to return to. Here I forget for a while all the troubles and worries of my life, in this heavenly corner I experience the warmest and positive emotions, along with restoration from the past. At any weather outside, within the PAS the sun is always shining.

From the very beginning, in naming our center ‘Dream House’, our team sought to make girls’ dreams come true: a real family, in which nobody humiliates and abuses them; a life without fear, where they are not pushed into an abyss.

And what more suitable day and occasion to affirm this than Christmas?

None of the girls had any idea what surprises awaited them as they returned from a Christmas eve church service.

GulnaraGulnara passed away, having lost her two-year battle with cancer. She was only 23. This heavy news reached us during our summer camp for single mothers.
In her early childhood, Gulnara moved with her mother and three siblings from Tajikistan to Moldova, where they found their new home in a small village. Mother was looking after the children alone, and working hard on the fields. The only support she had was when Sunday schools took care of her children. Eventually, Gulnara’s mother became addicted to alcohol, as did one of her brothers, and the day-to-day situation at home worsened. Living conditions became even harder when the family house burnt out, forcing Gulnara to leave in search of a better life and future. She started to sing in bars and pubs, and life seemed to get better.

My name is Nina. I’m 15 old. I was born in Ukraine, but soon after I was born our family moved to Moldova, where I lived with my grandmother in a village until this year. Long ago we were a complete and happy family with mother, father and three children. But this idyllic life collapsed in a short time like a house of cards. The first shock was when our father suddenly died, I was only 5 years old. After that my mother started to have problems.

 

Pleasant surprise

Peasant surpriseA short time ago, I was pleasantly surprised to hear that people are becoming increasingly familiar with ‘Escape’ magazine as well as the ways in which it is spreading across the country and helping young people. Katya Girbu, the magazine’s most active ‘Escape’ contributor, was the first to tell me the encourag- ing news. For the past two weeks, she had needed to stay home due to an illness. One evening during this time, she was doing something in the kitchenand TV was turned on. It was time for the evening news on the national channel. Katya was lost in her thoughts, but a report on thesubject of social advertisements against violence and human trafficking attracted her attention. Journalists were approaching to people passing by in the street to ask them if they were noticing the social advertisements presented in the city. They stopped a schoolgirl and asked her: “Have you seen the social advertising? Do you know where to seek help in case you are in trouble?”
