What a fabulous place the Phoenix Centre is, staff are beautiful people, caring, friendly just amazing. Disabled kids brought tears to my eyes happy, cared for and looked after educationally, emotionally, physically and sensory. A fab place.
Another fabulous day at the Phoenix Centre and outreach to community families/disabled children. I am humbled, blessed and loved.

CWUHA would like to thank all volunteers who took part in the #Sept18Convoy to Moldova. To have 12 newbies taking part was amazing. As always our friends @CWU Ireland delivered the goods! So enjoy your weekend with your families...you all deserve it. #BePartOfSomethingSpecial
Sorry about the mix up, Pat has now been reinstated 😂😂
Waiting to get on the ferry to take us home. This has definitely been an emotional 2.5 weeks. It really makes a massive difference seeing where the aid is going and I think this is something we would all want to take part in again! #BePartOfSomethingSpecial
Great job lads. 🚚🚚🚚
Every convoy needs a great leadership team to make sure the aid is delivered direct and the drivers & vehicles arrive home safely. So we just want to say a big thank you to Chris, Johnny, Kevin & Pat for leading our successful Sept 18 mission to Moldova #DelveringASmile
This time last week we visited a centre for disabled children in Chisinau. Most kids here were severely disabled due to lack of knowledge about their disabilities. This is just one of the problems @MADAid1 face.. yet looking at these kids faces you can see why they push so hard!
While we were in Moldova the children from the Phoenix centre put on a fundraising event to raise money for days out. It was quite emotional watching them knowing the time and effort that must have gone into making it happen #BePartOfSomethingSpecial https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=380051345867334&id=1599677553624475
This time last week we’d just arrived at the Phoenix centre to meet the children & staff. Its amazing the changes @MADAid1 has made to Moldova and seeing all the kids faces made the 4,000 miles trip worthwhile! #DelveringASmile #BePartOfSomethingSpecial @CWUnews @CWU
A last picture with Victoria @MADAid1 before we leave for the first leg of our journey home from Moldova! It’s amazing to see what her and her staff have accomplished in such a short space of time and it felt good knowing we were helping such a worthy cause #DeliveringASmile
Another successful CWUHA convoy! 16 drivers out of who - 13 new drivers first time in 🇲🇩 Moldova! Everyone will be back! Thank you Poliția Republicii Moldova ( dnul. Alexandru Pînzari si dnul. Ruslan) for keeping everyone safe! https://www.facebook.com/MADAidUK/videos/539599416483472/
Former convoy driver Steve Gough wearing one of our classic CWUHA T-Shirt's while on holiday. We're impressed it still fits! 😁
A picture paints a thousand words. It makes all the hard work worth it. Well done .
Even with broken VAN the spirit to deliver aid is stronger and as team we will Make it Happen! We will Make A Difference! Great effort- Carl, Lenny, Johny, Doru! https://www.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2384142988278760&id=606882912671452
Convoy up and nice early after a setback yesterday with one of the vans breaking down. The aim today is to make it to the border for an early crossing tomorrow!
Quick pit stop for the Convoy to Moldova to get our vignettes for Austria and then back on the road. Making up quite a bit of time today from roadworks yesterday!
