Like the streams winding through Mongolia’s mountain ranges, poverty runs rampant across the nation. In the wake of their suffering, many turn to alcohol, hiding their fear and pain behind addiction. This wretched life creates an environment ripe with abuse and exploitation—leading women and children along the twisted path of human trafficking. Hungry and hurting people find themselves crossing China’s border, hoping to make a meager living in the busy cities. But when hope runs dry, Mongolians can find a new beginning at River House. There, women live and work in safety, healing from their broken pasts and looking toward bright futures. They gather each day in the workroom, stitching headbands, scarves, and gloves from soft fabrics. When you wear the work of their hands, you shield them from risk and join us in the fight for human dignity.
