ORM runs a wide range of ongoing programmes in Moldova to provide for children and young adults in State care. We look at each person as an individual and adapt our programmes to suit their needs. These are varied ranging from medical & surgical intervention to social and life skills programmes.
It takes a team of over 250 full time Moldovan staff and over 900 part time volunteers to complete these necessary life changing and in some cases life saving programmes.
All ORM programmes go hand in hand, where one compliments another. For our medical programme to work we needed to address access to water, light and heat, nutrition, mediations and specialist trained staff.
We also made the decision very early on that for our work to have a purpose and meaning, we would need to relocate Irish staff to oversee the work first hand and respond to all the needs as they arose. Managing from a distance of 3000Km would be impossible. As the children's health improved, we were able to expand our work and provide a more integrated, service orientated approach to overall care.
