Our Projects

"Heart for Bulgaria" has completed many projects over the years (see Reports and Gallery for more information). 

Presently we are seeking to help people through the winter (see below how you can help!)

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 year with Corona restrictions, for many here it is financially challenging. The choice between food and firewood is a tough one, for the elderly this includes a choice between buying medication, 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 cubic metre 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.


Due to restrictions related to Coronavirus, the project might be put on hold in 2021 until further notice. If you are interested in sponsoring this project, you can contact us anyway and we'll inform you how we'll proceed. Thank you!
