Agape, our partner charity in Moldova, has continued to make good use of the funds Abingdon pupils raised for them through our sponsored walk in 2021. At the start of the new academic year, they have offered school supplies to children from 25 families in the villages of Zîmbreni and Văsieni to ensure that they have all the equipment they need for their studies and have also donated five multifunctional printers to three schools in Ialoveni which will make a big difference to teaching and learning.

The Headteacher of Petre Stefanuca School in Ialoveni has sent this message to the Abingdon community:

“Thank you for all the support offered. We know that we can count on this help from you and this increases the confidence that we will succeed, and that we will face the challenges in this period of great crisis.”

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine and very big increases in fuel costs mean that the winter months are going to be particularly challenging in Moldova this year, but Agape is committed to making a difference to as many poor families as possible.

Food donations have been made to a primary school in Ialoveni to help them provide lunch for their students; whilst food, hygiene products and other consumables have been delivered to the “Victory” Centre in Chisinau, which offers social-educational services for children from Moldova and refugees from Ukraine.
