Our work in Bulgaria

Upon hearing about our work in Romania, a Bulgarian physician told us about the dire situtaion in public orphanages in Bulgaria, where children no longer live but rather eke out a pitiful existence. So we traveled to Sofia for the first time in 1999. After meeting with the responsible authorities, we realized that corruption would make our work here that much more difficult. But we did manage to create a Bulgarian branch of Agapedia foundation in 2001 after all. Our involvement started out in a public children's home in Gorna Bania near Sofia. Over the last 14 years, we have been able to develop three projects in Sofia and one in Plovdiv in 2008.
