Moldova | Mission Direct


Making quality time possible

Moldova is one of the most vulnerable nations in Europe and poverty levels are high – especially in rural areas. When you visit here you take a step back in time, working in villages with roads dominated by geese and cows. Moldova has many challenges – one of which is its support and integration of children with special needs. In 2019 and 2020 we’ll be working with an organisation to help provide a day care centre for families with children who have special needs or disabilities. 


Please note that the trip dates may vary a day either way due to flight availability.

The Projects

Last year our teams joined Pilgrims International in Riscani, Northern Moldova where hey helped convert old industrial accommodation into dormitories for young girls at risk. Working with Pilgrims, they supported their work to protect young girls in Moldova from exploitation and trafficking, providing them with a safe house.

This year, we embark on a new partnership, working with Ancora Salvării (translated as Salvation Anchor), a Christian non-profit organisation based in Balti, aimed at helping children and young people in need - especially those with a disability or chronic illness - regardless of race, religion or nationality.

In 2019 and 2020, we'll help to renovate a derelict building into a daycare centre for the community to help support the needs of the community that others don't support. The renovated house will provide of relaxation for the whole family, making quality time possible. Family members can also participate in church camp activities.  Once complete, we'll work to make-over the garden to provide a safe, enjoyable outdoor space for children with special needs and their families. 

Rest and Relaxation

We will spend a day in Soroca and visit its famous Castle, as well as have a picnic by the river. For those who wish to climb the 600 steps to see the Candle, there will also be an opportunity to do so. If time permits, we will also visit the capital Chisinau which is a lively cosmopolitan city and/or Orhei, which houses a lovely monastery

Don’t be fooled by Moldova’s location in Europe; this is truly a cross-cultural experience to remember.
