Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

Open Hands is a registered charity in the UK and Romania that supports neglected and disadvantaged children in Romania. After witnessing the appalling living conditions of abandoned and destitute children we became determined to offer an escape route for the children.

Open Hands was formed in 2010 and today we support the poorest and most disadvantaged children in Romania; our aim is to provide for those without a loving family, secure home and education. Our motivation is to be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. As we continue to reach out to more children in need, we ask you to consider making a donation to enable us to transform even more lives.

24th February - Latest Project

unspecifiedTJZQ8TCRThe Rainbow House has a good sized garden but to make this garden more enjoyable Open Hands would like to build a playground and a roofed sitting area for the children in the summer. The Rainbow House is also in need of roof repairs and some renovation work. The total costs of the outside play space is £ 4,300. The house repairs will cost £5,200. We would like to complete the playground and renovations by summer 2017 and are currently looking for sponsors who would like to support these projects. If you would like to make a contribution - please donate here and use either 'Playground' or 'Renovations' as a reference for your donation.
