Moldova: Supporting ‘orphaned’ children

Most kids in Moldova’s orphanages are not orphans, technically. Their parents, struggling with some of the lowest incomes in Europe, simply leave Moldova behind and work in other countries. It is largely their children who populate the orphanages. Global Hand NGO partner, Help the Children, finds foster families for children who have been in institutions and, to support their work, runs a thrift shop, where they also train ‘orphanage graduates’ to become self-sustaining.

They received a magnificent corporate donation of 6,975 items of clothing, based in China, for distribution throughout their areas, and adjoining ones, where clothing can be sparse. As well, they received coffee shop furniture from a UK donor which renovated the canteen for their trainee staff (see main photo below).

From places far and wide, we love to see Global Hand facilitate movement of strategic goods.
