Bulgarian Orphans receive a Helping Hand from Spence-Chapin Families and Friends after a Tragic Fire

Spence-Chapin is delighted to report that, thanks to the generosity of our Bulgarian adoptive parents and their friends, we were able to send a donation of $4,145 to the Varna Children’s Home in Bulgaria. This orphanage, with whom Spence-Chapin has a nearly two-decade connection, suffered a tragedy in February when a fire swept through their building. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured, though a great deal of damage was sustained. Dr. Jankova, the orphanage’s director, sent the following words in response: “I’m writing back to you with gratitude for your compassion for our situation. The knowledge that in a difficult for us moment, we can rely on your help coming from so far away, brings us the comfort that we are not alone.”

We are glad to have assisted the Varna Children’s Home with their recovery efforts.
