Charity description

MAD-Aid logo
MAD-Aid runs programs in the UK and Moldova that Make A Difference in the lives of Moldovan children and adults with special needs that result in increased mobility, social inclusion, and happiness.

The charity was founded in 2012 with a mission to deliver medical aid from the Isle of Wight, UK, to one of the poorest countries in Europe--Moldova--from where the founder, Victoria Dunford hails.

Today, MAD-Aid works on three core programs:
  • Collects recycled medical equipment, wheelchairs, furniture, and other aid in the UK and delivers them to health care providers and individuals in need in Moldova.
  • Oversees the management of the world-class Phoenix Centre in Riscani, north of Moldova, a day centre for youth with special needs and an early intervention and rehabilitation centre that MAD-Aid established in 2015.
  • Builds and manages a self-sustainable modern care facility offering personalized family-oriented care to elders next to the Phoenix Centre. This program is in the fundraising and renovations phase, with a launch planned before the end of 2018.
MAD-Aid cannot thrive without its caring volunteers, donors, partners, supporters, and staff.
