The Vision of Good Hope, Moldova – Christmas 2018 appeal has begun for another year on behalf of people in one of Europe’s poorest regions.
The Ballymena-based charity is asking for monetary donations so that they can buy trailers of logs to help keep people warm throughout what is certain to be a biting cold season in Eastern Europe.
Vision of Good Hope, Moldova chairperson, Tom Dick reveals, the generosity of people from Northern Ireland can make a real difference to their neighbours in Eastern Europe.
Remembering last year’s appeal, he said:
“Thanks to everyone’s fantastic support, during the winter of 2017-18, we were able to distribute 83 trailers of logs to the people of the Glinoye region of Transnistria (the village around the Red Roofs orphanage).
With winter temperatures plummeting to -15°C and firewood a valued commodity, we hope to repeat this exercise this winter. Logs are a very practical way of showing them we, as a Christian charity operating in the area, care for them as we do our children.
If you would like to help, each individual trailer will cost £40. We truly appreciate any and all contributions to our campaign”, added Tom.
