Stella's Voice UK

08/03/2016 About 1 minute


Moldova is the poorest country in Europe and following the fall of communism in 1991, the shocking conditions of the state orphanages came to light. It has been all too common for the children to be abused, both physically and mentally.

The shambolic conditions of the orphanages birthed a vision to ensure no more children would experience this suffering.

At the age of sixteen, girls and boys reach the maximum age and have to leave state orphanages with nothing but a bus fare and their few, if any, belongings leaving them vulnerable to sex traffickers. Stella's Voice takes these children in, providing them with shelter, food and an education.

Stella's Voice was birthed from a handicapped girl called Stella. After leaving the state orphanage, Stella was trafficked and died at the age of 19 of HIV as a result.
In Moldova, Stella's Voice currently has three safe houses - two for girls and one for boys - bringing hope to the hopeless.

In 2011, Stella's Voice was given the permission to take over one of the state orphanages and after spending over half a million pounds to build the infrastructure such as roofs, windows, showers, heating system, water wells and plumbing, 'Providence House' now provides the best of facilities to children that had never seen a flushing toilet or gone to bed with a full stomach of food.

There are an estimated 30 million slaves worldwide, a statistic that is only going to grow unless we do something about it. Stella's Voice has already gained momentum for their work in Portsmouth, Newton Aycliffe and Peterhead. We are in the process of launching in the Maldon district of Essex and WE NEED YOU!! We need volunteers, local businesses and partners to help us establish with strength, unity and professionalism. If you would to get involved please contact Tim Button.
