Trafficked. Abused. Orphaned. Unwanted. Troubled. Lost. How Missio Link International is responding to the crisis by aiding victims and vulnerable children in Romania.

Way Library, in partnership with The League of Women Voters of the Perrysburg Area (LWVPA), invites you to attend an important presentation by Lorena Rusovan, Executive Director of Missio Link International (MLI).

MLI is a Romanian non-governmental organization which is committed to addressing the needs of vulnerable children through its children-at-risk programs such as the Deborah House. Consisting of two multi-faceted residential care homes, Deborah House provides a continuum of specialized treatment programs focusing on the needs of Romania’s seriously abused girls.

Please join us and learn more about the fastest growing organized crime in the world--human trafficking--and how young victims are being restored. Complimentary refreshments will be provided by Debhouse Cookies, a popular Perrysburg-based baked goods company. Debhouse Cookies was inspired by the mission of Deborah House, and proceeds from the sale of its products help provide the most basic needs of food, shelter, education, and security for the girls in residence there.

Way Library welcomes software developer Scott Radcliff for a talk on bitcoin. Join us as we learn about the history of bitcoin, how it works, and what impact this and other forms of cryptocurrency will have on the future.
