Summary:
Karen Kelly, a charity-leader from Northern Ireland, raised about £10m of aid and drove it to a Moldovan orphanage. This programme reveals what she found on arrival. The children were all girls, many with serious illnesses, living in shocking conditions. From day one bureacracy hampers the aid effort - the orphanage director won't let any of the aid be put to use until an exhaustive inventory has been taken. The workers discover unused aid stockpiled in other storerooms in the orphanage. The programme finishes with an update one year on. The volunteers accompanying the convoy are ordinary people with little or no experience in this kind of humanitarian work. Convoy To Moldova tells their story.
