Providing basic necessities to children in need in Eastern Europe

Children's Help Net Foundation is Closing

Conditions in Moldova have changed considerably since we set up the Foundation 23+ years ago. Our mission was to provide basic necessities to children in need in Eastern Europe, many of whom would become US citizens through adoption. Foreign adoption has all but shut down and the orphanages are transitioning to community centers and temporary shelters for children being placed into foster care. There are also additional sources of funding available now that were not available in the past.

Children's Help Net is no longer accepting donations. We plan to disperse remaining funds to the institutions we support in Moldova less legal and any other fees associated with closing the Foundation.

We thank all of our donors for supporting CHNF over many years.

Children's Help Net Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded by parents of diverse backgrounds who share the bond of having successfully adopted children from Eastern Europe. During this experience, the founders became keenly aware of the plight of children in that region of the world, and the need to promote child welfare and the adoption of children.

The mission of CHNF is to support projects and programs that effect changes in social and healthcare issues that directly or indirectly benefit children and their families. CHNF provides basic necessities including food, medicine, vitamins and clothing for children in need in Eastern Europe. We work in Moldova, Romania and Bulgaria.

Consistent humanitarian aid.

Healthy Meals

Nutrition and health are at the core of our mission.

Daily Vitamins

Children often arrive with vitamin deficiencies which are quickly and easily eliminated.

Lifesaving Medications

Medications often solve medical conditions that can quickly get out of control and become life-threatening.

Consistent Aid During COVID-19

“Thanks for taking care of us. We are well. Everyday care continues at the Center; all of the children are healthy. But we are isolated. We go to work to make sure they have everything they need. Many companies, however, are closed, and do not supply the necessary products. We are forced to shop for vegetables, fruits, and vitamins ourselves. We are very glad to do this for the children and we thank you for your support which helps us solve these problems.”
