The Mummy Diaries star Sam Faiers was overcome with emotion after offering to pay for medical treatment for a disabled child in an orphanage in Moldova.
The 29 year old was moved by a visit to an orphanage, which looks after children who are disabled that have both been orphaned or abandoned by their parents.
Sam travelled with friend Luisa Zissman to the orphanage to raise money and awareness for charity Outreach Moldova, which 32 year old Luisa has been supporting for “years”. The pair later revealed they raised £100,000 for the charity.

In a teaser clip, Sam could be seen sitting around a table at the orphanage with Luisa, some of the workers and a doctor. In a clip Sam then explains: “Straight away I’ve offered to pay for an MRI scan on his eyes. This could change this little boy’s life forever.”
Luisa then says goodbye to two babies in a playpen while Sam stands further back in tears before saying to Luisa: “Look, they don’t want you to go.”
The Apprentice star then strokes the hand of the baby boy and says: “Oh I hope he finds a mumma.”
Sam and Luisa then say their goodbyes to the children while the Mummy Diaries star explains in a VT: “Saying goodbye was awful. It’s just something about saying goodbye which literally feels like your heart’s being ripped in two.”
Back at the orphanage, Sam can be seen covering her face with her hands while she cries while Luisa comforts her as she says: “But, do you know what, it makes you human, you can’t not come here and not be touched by it.
“That’s what I was like and hopefully, it will make a difference to your life and the kid’s life’s that you’ve met.”

Sam later admits it was “one of the most emotional days of her life”.
The pair’s trip, where Sam took 10 suitcases of goodies for the children, changed Sam's outlook on life, which she later revealed to OK! online.
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Sam told us it was “hard” visiting the home, as she said: “To think of all those littles ones abandoned with no one to love them was so sad.”
She added: “It makes you realise how lucky we are, how lucky our children are and it makes you appreciate the small things."
While Luisa added: “It’s such a stark reality and it’s so hard to converse to someone who hasn’t been there and hasn’t seen it, how good we all have it.”
