Country: Transnistria
Partner: Help the Children

Help the Children (HTC) is a non-profit faith-based organization dedicated to serving the needy by providing a range of social projects and supportive services for orphans and vulnerable children in Transnistria.


The organization operates a series of thrift stores in the area to fund Help the Children’s foster care system. HTC established the first foster care system in Transnistria to help children who live without parental supervision and offer a safe, nurturing alternative to the state run orphanage system, by placing children with families.


Help the Children also offers sustainable employment for young men and women transitioning out of the orphanage system through the organization’s thrift store network.

The team at Help the Children are committed to providing opportunities for the disadvantaged children and young men and women in Transnistria. Your donated shoes and clothing are a tool to help create change in a struggling economy.
