MoldovaMoldova

Caritas Czech Republic has been helping in the Republic of Moldova for many years. Since 2004, we have supported young people and families helping create new jobs. In addition, we helped several villages in Transnistria acquire farm machinery, so that villagers could be economically self-sufficient. Crafts classes for children from socially disadvantaged families are another example of how Caritas Czech Republic has helped Moldova.

Currently, we focus on social and health care and on supporting agriculture. We work on various projects, such as one that deals with abandoned children.

From all the population groups in Moldova, the most severely affected by the unstable economic situation in the country are children who live in incomplete, dysfunctional or socially weak families. In Bendery, one of Moldovan cities, a day centre has been active for thirteen years, whose aim is to protect the rights and interests of children and youth, develop their skills, and prepare them to be independent. Besides this, the centre’s staff tries to ensure that the children enjoy the summer.
