Transforming a nation through prevention and restoration programs

Serghei leads a dynamic team that seeks to restore the dignity and integrity of people in Moldova. As a boy, he experienced first hand poverty and crisis with the collapse of the Soviet Union and both of his parents losing their jobs. In his desperation, he found the church and became a believer. His ministry in Moldova focuses on prevention and restoration programs to support victims of trafficking (a huge issue in Moldova), as well as victims of abuse, single mothers, and abandoned children. Serghei explains:

“Because of my background of brokenness to redemption, it is special for me to help people see a way out of their poverty, offering them real opportunities in life, and showing them the true love of God.”

Partnership Focus

Our partnership in Moldova serves the vulnerable of society with a focus on victims of exploitation and children. The ministry leads prevention and rehabilitation programs from art therapy to awareness events. They also invest in the lives of Moldova’s future leaders, to bring about lasting change in the nation for years to come.

Featured Projects

Afghan Refugee Relief

Following the Taliban take-over in August of 2021, many peoples in Afghanistan are at risk of violence and persecution. Thousands of refugees crossed land borders into neighbouring countries like Pakistan seeking safety. Others are internally displaced and are in a perilous situation in Afghanistan. Recent reports suggest that half the remaining population of Afghanistan is struggling to find food and other basic necessities. Partners International is working in both Pakistan and Afghanistan to provide food, clothing, accommodations and other necessities to Afghan peoples. Our relief program also provides start-up funds and training for families to run a vegetable push-cart business. The individuals that have received the vegetable carts have begun to earn enough to support themselves and their families.

Angolan Refugee Relief

Namibia is suffering through the worst long-term drought in 90 years. It is so severe that way back in June of 2019 the president declared a state of emergency.  Since then, conditions have only deteriorated. The drought is causing the death of wildlife and the displacement of people. Namibians are resilient but these and other challenges are insurmountable for those facing starvation. Namibia has one of the highest states of economic inequality in the world.  Its extreme poverty rate is projected to rise to 18.9% in 2022 (World Bank). Unemployment is high and particularly affects women (38%) and young people (43%).  Around 15% of the adult population is infected with the AIDS virus. The economy is in freefall, shrinking by almost 10% in the last two years. Covid-19 is only adding to the challenges. In March of 2021 starving Himba tribespeople people started arriving out of the Kalahari desert seeking care in Namibia. We are providing life-saving nutrition and medical support to these people.
