The Moldova Project
The Jo Walters Trust has made a grant of £2,000 to the Moldova Project, set up in 2008 with the aim of helping some of the most vulnerable people in Moldova. It became a registered Charitable Trust in 2011. The support they provide includes for the many children living in orphanages, as well as people living in extreme poverty in Moldova's remote villages. They try to support these people by providing financial help, such as by arranging sponsors for deprived families and funding projects in the orphanages. They also provide more practical support by arranging for children to go to school and for damaged houses to be repaired. The founders, Emma and Lucy are in their 3rd year at Bristol University, where Jo studied for her primary degree in Spanish and Russian.
They have provided two reports on the work they completed in Moldova in August 2012, which you can read using the links below.
