Join the expedition team distributing warm winter clothing to orphans and vulnerable children in Moldova. The past few years of Keep a Child Warm (KACW) have seen some fantastic teams and some unforgettable experiences. We will be located in rural schools; the children from the surrounding areas come to receive their warm coats, hats, scarves, gloves and blankets. This trip is hard work, but also incredibly rewarding.
The cost of trips is £450 + the cost of flights. The flights are normally between £250-£300, but we charge these separately so that we can keep the cost down for our team members. This means overall we do not expect the trip to cost any more than £700. Obviously prices can change over the course of a year.
