Iliana's Story - KitePride

BlogIliana's Story

She was human trafficked from her home in Lvov by the Ukranian mafia, transported to Israel, and forced to beg by standing on the streets while holding a sign saying "I am deaf. Please, help me" for little to no money for herself. Iliana is a beautiful mother of two daughters who she dearly loves. For now they reside with her aunt in the Ukraine. She came to work at kitepride through a rescue organization who contacted us saying that she would be a great fit with us for her transitioning from being a slave and into the work force. Imagine being alone, afraid, deaf, and only speaking and understanding Russian in an unfamiliar land. What a brave and strong woman to be overcoming such great obstacles with such determination. She has such a soft and gentle nature but her spirit is much more fierce. She is very much the reason why we do what we do. For their restoration and their complete independence and freedom. She now has a new outlook on life and your support helps to make this happen for her and so many like her.
