Financial resources in this land-locked country are still quite modest and the international Monetary Fund continues to describe Moldova as “the poorest country in Europe”.

Ravaged by war and occupation, Ukraine has taken time to recover since its days of Soviet rule - poverty, alcohol addiction and the highest European rate of HIV+ infections leaves deep scars.
This small project commands a great deal of respect by service users and local authorities alike.
