Mark Fashevsky

Executive Director

“I was born on December 12, 1973 in Ukraine, Rovno. I was 4 when my parents moved to Moldova. At the age of 17 I finished high school and in 1996 graduated from Tiraspol State University with a degree in history. I carried on with my education in Wales, UK (Evangelical Theological college of Wales) where I received BA degree in Theology. On my return to Moldova I started to work as an interpreter for an American missionary and while doing this work learned about the need of the orphaned children. In 2002 along with a Christian lady from a local congregation in Tiraspol we started House of Hope project aimed at providing shelter for orphaned children. This eventually led me to Help the Children project which was initiated in 2006. My current role is to provide a strategic direction for the ministry and needed funding for current programs.”

My role is to raise awareness of the need with potential donors, establish new partnerships, fundraise and correspond with the donors, implement new ideas and strategies into our work and develop the current projects.”
