Elena Barlow is a young lady who was born in Murmansc, Russia. Her parents divorced when she was 6 and her mother decided to move to Moldova. When Elena was 8, her mother passed away. Thus, she was taken to live a study at the boarding school no. 3 in Chisinau. When Elena reached the age of 16, she was adopted by a family from Arizona (USA). In America she could continue her school and she graduated the college in Arizona and the University in Utah (economics). At that time she already had a job offer at the Investment Bank. But her dream is to study the law and start her own agency for adoption.
Being in America, she does not forget her home country and the children from the boarding school, so she is visiting them every year. As much as possible, Elena is organizing a humanitarian help for these children, gathering clothes, toys, school supplies, etc. The friends helping the most with this humanitarian program are the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints and the Mission Without Bordes.
In 2013, we joined this humanitarian program and helped in receiving, storing and distributing the presents to 3 boarding schools: Bulboaca village (Anenii Noi district), Orhei town and Grinauti village (Ocnita district). Children were very happy to receive their presents and were even helping in unloading the trucks!
We are very grateful for the opportunity to become partners in this project and for the privilege to bring joy to children. We are very thankful to the local representatives of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints and the Mission Without Bordes, who contributes to the successful project implementation.
