For several years The Lighthouse has been building relationship with the Tabita Association and Breadline ministries in Moldova. These charities are working to support the physical and spiritual needs of their impoverished local community.
Amongst other projects the Tabita Association runs a farm with 40 dairy cows, employing local workers. Wheat and sunflowers are also grown on the farm and distributed each winter to homes in the local area. The charity has also been working in partnership with churches to assist local farmers to buy the equipment they need to farm their land and create a sustainable livelihood.
Brian Pile from Breadline and Pastor Slavic Duman from the Tabita Association visit The Lighthouse each year and report on the development of these ministries.
Brain and Slavic have visited farms and gained veterinary knowledge from contacts in The Lighthouse. They have learned good farming practice and animal husbandry skills which have now been put on place on the farm in Dancu. We have also recently hosted two Moldovian ladies from the Tabita Association's new bakery project whilst they gained skills in Ditty's Bakery Magherafelt.
Please contact Dave McKinstry for more information.
