In Moldova, long one of Europe’s poorest countries, nearly 17 percent of people live below the poverty line. With jobs both scarce and badly paid, almost one-fourth of adult Moldovans work abroad, one of the highest proportions of any country worldwide. Remittances from these migrant workers preserve the country from economic collapse.
It is our mission to provide compassion as we distribute shoes to Moldovans in need. Your donations are what make this aspiration a reality and we appreciate your generosity in helping us raise the funds to cover the following expenses:
- Freight: 20′ container = $4,300
- Customs: $1,000
- Flights: Dallas – Chisinau ($1,200 x 3 staff members) = $3,600
- Housing: ($100 day x 6) = $600
- Transportation: $750
- Meals: ($80 day x 6) = $480
