The banner above features Rusalina Turcu, age 12. Her mother has lived abroad since she was little, leaving Rusalina in the care of her aunt. Rusalina embodies the sad reality of many present-day Moldovan children. There are more than 100,000 children left behind in Moldova as one or both parents seek work abroad, leaving their villages desolate.
Through our After School project and other forms of support, MWB offers emotional, spiritual and practical support to children like Rusalina.
Your donation can contribute to this vital work. With your help, we can offer support and hope to many more children who would otherwise merely feel abandoned.
