Easter has always been one of our favorite holidays and the children and young adults at the social institutions love it. In 2024 we got a donation from Promotie Foundation which allowed us to launch the regular Tabitha Easter campaign.  We provided Easter Bread, eggs, colors and chocolate goodies to over 600 children, young adults at the social homes in Botevgrad, Roman, Mezdra, Vratsa, Borovan, Pleven, Dren Dupnitsa, Saomokov, Stara Zagora and Sofia. The last couple of years were rather turbulent because of the very high inflation over 30%, the war in Ukraine and the conflict in the Middle East.     However, thanks to the commitment and generosity of our donors we managed to provide an enjoyable Easter for the children and young adults at the social institutions which Tabitha Bulgaria Foundation has been supporting for years.

We are grateful to Stichting Promotie (NL) for their understanding and commitment to the Easter holiday. It has been more than 15 years that they have supported the social institutions in Bulgaria for Christmas and Easter. We would like to express our personal gratitude to Mr. Maarten Koel, who never failed to cheer up the the less fortunate children in Bulgaria at such holy days.  We would like to acknowledge the active help of Tabitha Netherlands Foundation and the personal involvement of its Board.


We greatly appreciated the financial help

The execution of the project was done by Tabitha Bulgaria Foundation team who speared no time or efforts to provide the social homes with all the necessary goods for a happy Easter.
