The time of the meeting is 1:00pm-4:00pm. The Speaker is Cecilia Sakarita, the director of the ministry “the Threads of Hope Hellas“.  It is located in Athens Greece.

As a non-profit ministry from the nation of Greece, Hope Hellas concentrates on equipping and training women from Eastern Europe and Africa on the evils of human trafficking. 14,500 to 17,500 people are trafficked into the United States from overseas and enslaved every year.

The common goal is to build a pathway out of sexual slavery in one of it’s largest strongholds: Athens, Greece.

Through mentoring and training the women on our care learn valuable skills related to sewing. Which we pray will give them a dignified source of income wherever they may go.
