Moldova

Moldova is also called the »poorhouse of Europe«. The monthly income per capita is only CHF 200, about 20 times less than in Switzerland. The population has been declining for years - no wonder, since the country hardly offers any chances for a dignified existence to its inhabitants. Those who are able, leave their homeland behind. Children, elderly persons and the underprivileged are left behind.

Children's camp in Moldova - a review

Until the end of the Soviet regime, Christians were also persecuted in Moldova. On illegal Bible smuggling trips behind the Iron Curtain, the director of AVC Switzerland made first contacts. 30 years later we can be part of a strongly growing work in Moldova. In total, more than 34,000 children have participated in our children's camps in Moldova, and more than 10,000 of them have given their lives to Jesus.

A DIGNIFIED RETIREMENT
Most of our home residents have a long, hardly imaginable path of suffering behind them. With us, they can spend their last years in dignity and without worrying about their daily bread.
DAY CARE CENTERS FOR THE POOREST
Neglected children receive social care, food, clothing and, if necessary, medical assistance. Depending on their situation, the focus is on gardening and small animal husbandry as well as food processing, or on school education, homework assistance and tutoring. Drug prevention is always an issue.
