Our Projects

"Heart for Bulgaria" has completed many projects over the years (see Reports and Gallery). Our main and permanent project is a programme called "Granny's Grandchild," retired ladies who care for abandoned and disabled children in a family-type home in Pazardzhik.

Donate Warmth with Love this Winter!

"Heart for Bulgaria" in partnership with FCTrelief, is gathering donations to provide firewood for poor or struggling families. This Christmas season you can donate warmth in the homes! After a tough Corona restrictions, for many here it feels like sanctions. The choice between food and firewood is a tough one, for the elderly this includes a choice between medicines too.

You are very welcome to donate warmth with love to people in need! For only 50 CHF or 92 BGN you can secure one m3 of firewood. Most homes need 5 to 10 m3 per winter.

"Granny's Grandchild"

"Heart for Bulgaria" currently employs five retired ladies who care for abandoned and disabled children. This is a "double-help": the retired ladies can top-up their (usually low) pensions and through their work needy children get more personal care and one-to-one attention. The programme was started by another charity several years ago, but became dysfunctional, before "Heart for Bulgaria" took up the idea and is now into its seventh successful year. We are very pleased, and so are the ladies, and especially the children.


This is a precious project that could be expanded if more sponsors are found. Do contact us if you want to contribute!
