Thank You

Mary Treacy would like to thank Avoca ICA for their recent cake sale for ongoing projects In Moldova.  The sale raised the sum of €581.00.  This money will be used to break the cycle of Institutionalization in Moldova, giving those institutionalized from birth the opportunity to live independent lives away from the bleak environment that has been their life for far too long. 

This project is already underway and will do much to empower Moldova’s most vulnerable people. 

Avoca ICA is a shining light for all in the work that they do for the most defenceless both at home and abroad.  A sincere thank you also to all those who supported`and contributed to  the cake sale  in any  way. On behalf of Moldova’s most vulnerable people, a huge, warm and sincere thank you.

God bless you all.
