In addition to our day to day work with people mentally and physically scarred for life from the horror orphanages in Romania in the 1980s, we are also supporting refugees arriving in our home town of Siret, which lies directly on the Ukranian border.
We're uniquely well placed to help as we are on the ground, have Ukranian speaking staff, as well as long term and trusted relationships with many local government organisations, including
The Siret Mayor's office,
Suceava County Social Services,
Suceava Child Protection department,
Local police and fire departments ,
All major churches in the area
Our day to day work is below - we're not giving up on that: We work with young and the now not-so-young people who experienced the horror orphanages in Romania in the 1980s and 1990s as well as providing specialist childcare services in an impoverished area in the north of the country. We set up a Romanian charity called O Noua Viata (A New Life) and now work closely with local government and the Romanian Child Protection Department. We own and work in a number of care homes and are training local Romanians to run these. We are also organising funding from within Romania so that one day the charity will run independently of international aid. Please donate to support our cause
