Charity description

MAD-Aid logo
  • Mad-Aid (“Make a
Difference”) is based on the Isle of Wight. It helps children with disabilities in the Republic of Moldova to gain mobility and thereby education.
  • It also helps Moldovan hospitals to access high quality equipment.

MAD-Aid was founded by Moldovan born Victoria Dunford, now living on Isle of Wight, UK.
Her motivation for setting up the charity comes from the love of her own country and a very strong desire to support the very weak and inadequate infrastructure (a legacy of the collapse of the Soviet Union) especially in relation to education and health.
Working in the NHS, she was struck by the fact that much of the equipment used by the hospital is upgraded on a regular basis, releasing huge amounts of very serviceable
equipment that could be put to good use elsewhere.
After delivering tones of hospital equipment and hundreds of wheelchairs for children
with disability
that were stuck within 4 walls, we have decided to set an example for
the country and open first daily activity centre for children with
disabilities in northern Moldova. The Phoenix Centre will inspire other organizations throughout Moldova to step up and put an end to this crisis.
