Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

christmastime2018Loaded with 385 Shoe Boxes and other donations our Trustees, Cees and Andrea, arrived safe and sound at the Open Hands HQ in Suceava yesterday. The journey from Germany to Romania took them 3 days. On their way, travelling through the Carpatian Mountains, Andrea took this beautiful image.

Preparations for an unforgettable Christmas are going full steam ahead! Our German office is receiving lots of beautiful Shoe Boxes - if you live in Germany & would like to make one please get in touch. We will be driving, distributing and are planning large Christmas parties for around 90 children and their families but we need your help. Please help and donate to our Christmas Appeal!

 

 

 

 

DSC 0608School starts again! We want our children to experience the much needed education to finally escape the cycle of poverty. After almost three months of summer holidays in Romania, even the children are looking forward to being able to go back to school or kindergarten on September 11th. Then – just like here – parents have to pay fees, buy new notebooks, pens, books, etc., maybe even a school bag for the first day of school in a child's live and some new clothes for this very special moment. If you would like to help us to give our children a good start into the new classes, then please make a donation here. We thank you so much for your support also on behalf of our parents & children!

While driving through the beautiful landscape of the Carpathian mountains, I felt very happy and excited. I was looking forward to meet people, who are infinitely precious and loved: the children and parents from our family support programs and of course our much appreciated Romanian staff.
