Dorcas is active in four countries in Eastern Europe: Albania, Ukraine, Romania and Moldova.
In this region, our work is designed to strengthen remote communities and increase livelihood opportunities.
This includes three focus-areas:
- Economic development
- Child protection
- Community Safety Nets for the elderly
The inclusion of minority groups - such as Roma - in society is an ongoing priority.
In 2018, our Adopt a Granny programme provided practical care and psychosocial support to 35,000 elderly people across 100 communities in Ukraine, Romania and Moldova.
