This option is for GROUPS.

Every summer more than 200 international participants visit Moldova for our “Love Moldova” programme. Over a two-month period of the summer, we offer a variety of exciting options for two-week outreaches in Moldovan villages. Teams come alongside local churches as they run children’s programs, sports camps or construction projects, sometimes staying in one village, sometimes travelling from place to place. There are usually also possibilities to work with youth or to visit and help poor families and neglected elderly. All these are used to share God’s love and truth with the people of Moldova.

This is an opportunity for groups of 4 or more people to partner with local churches in reaching out in their communities by sharing God's love through construction, practical work, and children’s programmes. Through this cross-cultural experience, you will have the amazing opportunity to grow in your faith and relationship with God.

Your group will be serving in partnership with local village churches to serve within the community by utilising your hands through practical work. The specific needs are depending on each church in the village.

This video will give you an insight into Love Moldova outreaches.
