A Paradise for Children

(PHOTO UPDATE) The City of the Children is the home for 300 needy children. Father Sporschill and his project Concordia found the ideal conditions for their plans in Pirita, a small village in the north of the country.

With the financial aid of the Moldovan government, Austrian companies and private sponsors, a fallow children’s village had been renovated for three years. Next to innumerable homes, there is a kindergarten, a school, a hospital, a sports hall and a soup kitchen. Teenagers learn mechanical skills in training workshops. “With the City of the Children we developed a model for social centres in Moldova,” explains Father Sporschill. Today Concordia runs 15 social centres with soup kitchens all over the country.
