Moldova is a growing program. Moldova enjoys a favorable climate, good farmland, and is famous for its wines. However, it remains the poorest country in Europe, accounting for the high placement of children in its orphanages.

Pre-school and young school age children are also waiting for families. Sibling groups and children with special needs will be given priority in being matched with international families. Children are cared for in institutional settings in Moldova.
