The impoverished inhabitants are being forced into prostitution and selling their organs just to survive. Billboards in the capital Chisinau warn women about being sold as prostitutes. UNICEF has set up a call centre for women. We hear one such harrowing tale: “A man told me that I had been sold to him, and he told me what I would have to do. I started to cry, and said I wanted to go home. But he had already sold me to two other men.” Times are hard. Disillusioned with Western ways, the communists are voted back into power in the spring, with an absolute majority. An engaging and eye-opening look at a neglected region.
