STELLA’S Voice, an outreach of The New Hope Trust which aims to prevent the practice of sex traffiking in Moldova, has benefited to the tune of almost £800 thanks to a Buchan woman’s fundraiser.
College student Kimberley Kaminski organised the special fundraiser as part of her NC Music course and raised £760 on the night with help from live performances from bands ‘US’, Raw Stereo, The Shores and acoustic acts Rachel Longmore and Emma Hogarth.
The money will be used to help promote the work of Stella’s Voice throughout the country.
Meanwhile, the latest aid truck to leave Peterhead from New Hope Trust arrived in Moldova last week packed with vital supplies.Among the items being delivered to the country were fridge freezers, washing machines, toiletries, food, warm clothing and the remainder of the Christmas parcels.
Mark Morgan of New Hope Trust told the Buchanie: “With temperatures this week hitting as low as –20c in Moldova, this truck is literally a lifeline to many orphans.
“The Trust still needs clothing to suit all ages and all sizes. We can collect or people can drop them off to us.
“All the latest details about our work in Moldova can be found at www.newhopetrust.org
“We are literally saving lives, and preventing orphans from being trafficked.”
Moldova, Europe’s poorest country, is known as the engine of sex trafficking and has thousands of children in orphanages.
“We are making a lasting change – genuinely changing lives,” said Mark.
“We need your help to continue to do so.”
