As Sponsorship Director for the last 5 years, I am obviously very committed to this organization and well-informed on their programs and successes. I am reminded daily of how compassionate, dedicated and focused the staff and contributors are in their efforts to improve the lives of the orphans, physically, emotionally, educationally and socially through our programs.

I had a wonderful experience with the One Heart Bulgaria nonprofit organization. When my brother and I got in the country, the local program director drove us to the city we would be serving in, and met with the mayor and the director of the orphanage with us. He helped us get established in the orphanage, and periodically checked in with us to make sure that all was well. We were very well taken care of while we were in Bulgaria. The service that we were able to provide was heartwarming. The kids in the orphanage that we stayed in were relatively well taken care of. That is, their physical needs were met. However, with seventy children and five staff, there is no way for them to get the attention and emotional support that they need to mature healthily. As we spent time listening to and playing with the orphans, we were able to see the effect of our service. The kids opened up and began caring more for each other than before. It was comforting to see this change take place in the short time that we were with them.

Serving Bulgaria's orphans for the past 7 years through the organization One Heart Bulgaria has changed my life forever! What started as a small struggling grassroots organization that gave assistance to 2 orphanages has grown into a thriving non-profit now giving aid to 25 orphanages and over 1,000 orphans. We have dedicated sponsors and supporters from around the world and a team of highly qualified and passionate individuals. Together, we commit ourselves to helping Bulgaria's orphans. We take pride in our careful management of donations and encourage donors to choose just how they want their donations to be spent to benefit the children. Most importantly, I love the Bulgarian orphans and have dedicated my life to improving their lives and bring them joy.

One Heart Bulgaria is a first class organization. The level of sincerity and dedication at the organization is impressive, as is the number of lives touched by the organization's small army of volunteers. One of the things that impresses me most about the organization is the sincere devotion its members display toward improving the lives of Bulgarian orphans. This is something that means a great deal to them personally. They regularly donate their own time and resources to the cause. They are genuinely ecstatic with every donation and every new breakthrough. It is an absolute honor to be affiliated with this organization. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in helping.
