Our first project began in Esslingen, Germany. We established a children's center for ages six to twelve as a way of creating a small, positive world in which children feel at home. It is a space for children to realize their potentials, practice social behavior as well as intercultural learning. Today, the Children's Center in Esslingen services 30-60 children a day and serves as the International Project Office for our endeavors around the world.
In Romania our gynecological practice provides help to women in need, particularly women from small villages, with basic medial care, contraceptives, family planning counseling and cancer check-ups.
In Bulgaria our involvement started out in a public children's home in Gorna Bania near Sofia. Over the last 14 years, we have been able to develop three projects in Sofia and one in Plovdiv in 2008.
Moldova ranks 107 on the Human Development Index and is one of the poorest countries in Europe. Here we have helped establish courses to train nurses and project coordinators from remote villages in Moldova to care for elderly, sick and often neglected people and children.
