REPUBLIC OF MOLDOVA


The Municipal Counsel for Children's Rights and Protection thanks Children's Help Net for 10 years of support!

This collage of photographs was taken at the Municipal Orphanage in April 2003. The meal consisted of vegetable soup (top and bottom left) followed by the main course (top and bottom center) consisting of a baked ground chicken roll, a 3-bean mash, cold slaw salad and whole grain bread. Since November 2001 children received a daily multiple vitamin plus an iron supplement if required. In response to the medical report filed by Maria Jechiu MD, Orphanage Director in 2003, the children now receive a more potent vitamin supplement plus iron.


How you can help: Help us continue to feed these children by making a donation for the purchase of food, vitamins and medicine.

Feeding and providing vitamins and medicine to the children at the Municipal Orphanage and the Placement and Rehabilitation Center for Young Children in Chisinau.


Children's Help Net Foundation purchases food twice a month and medicine as needed for the 120 children living at the Municipal Orphanage and as needed for those (~200) living at the Placement and Rehabilitation Center for Young Children in Chisinau.

CHNF, together with the Department of Children's Rights Protection, the Mayor's office in Chisinau and the Charitable Foundation Andrea, began installation of a new natural gas-fired heating system for the Municipal Orphanage in the Fall of 2004. The Foundation paid for two gas meters, two hot water heaters and two furnaces. This project was completed in March 2005. These photographs were taken in April 2005.

Holiday Celebrations

Children with their Christmas gifts.

Every year Children's Help Net purchases Christmas gifts, food and candy for a special Christmas celebration at the Municipal Orphanage in Chisinau. In 2003 we began to do the same for the Placement and Rehabilitation Center for Young Children. We also support the Department of Children's Rights Protection, City of Chisinau for their program entitled "The Christmas Caravan", a program that provided 500 gifts for orphans and children under their care. We also purchase gifts annually in celebration of Easter for both orphanages and for the elderly and diabled persons living at the Old Age Home of Chisinau.
