Organization Description
Volunteering Moldova is a tiny registered non-profit organisation based in England that aims to benefit the lives of vulnerable people living in state run institutions in Moldova. We offer two volunteering opportunities within state run institutions in Moldova. The institutions are, an orphanage located in the capital city of Chisinau that has 170 children between the ages of 0 to 7 years old, and a disabled institution for males that has 180 males between the ages of 5 to 35 years old in Orhei.

Whilst we are a UK based charity, we welcome all volunteers from every corner of the globe. Please note that we are unable to accept volunteers who require a visa to enter Moldova.

The role as a volunteer is to go in and have as much interaction as possible! You will get to have one on one interaction, encourage them to come out of themselves and to laugh and have fun! Whilst this sounds simple, the fact is that they get such little interaction that something as small as holding their hand makes a massive difference to them, you are not only providing a break in routine to the residents of the institutions through fun activities but to also to provide one to one interaction that the residents all need and crave. The experience will provide you with memories that you will never forget.

The trustees cover the running costs of the charity, to ensure that 100% of donations make a direct difference to the lives of those living in institutions in Moldova.

We are passionate about making a difference to the lives of those living in institutions in Moldova.

The cost is £200 per week (GBP) and discounts are available to those looking to stay longer than a month. The price includes an Enhanced DBS check (for UK citizens), airport transfers, orientation on arrival, all accommodation during your stay (a shared apartment in central Chisinau), daily breakfast (continental style), internet access at accommodation, full support and assistance from the charity throughout your stay in Moldova and a 24 hour emergency support number. The volunteer work is not what you are paying for, as you can see from the list, the price covers the costs of the services we offer our volunteers in Moldova.

We ask that volunteers contact us prior to applying to volunteer to ensure that we are able to accept you, as we are unable to accept volunteers who require a visa to enter Moldova.
