Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

istvan10Open Hands would like to send a big thank you to everyone who donated towards The Rainbow House renovations and playground! With your help we succeeded to raise the much needed funds and the projects can now go ahead this summer. We are looking forward to seeing the children enjoy their new playground! Pictures to follow!

The Rainbow House is also in need of roof repairs and some renovation work.


Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2016 Shoe Box Appeal. We received a total of 771 boxes which we distributed amongst the poor. Lots of beautiful pictures are available on our Open Hands Facebook page and very soon on our new Media section on this website as well.

main2Each year Open Hands runs a popular shoe box appeal where you fill a box with lovely gifts for a child living in poverty in Romania. Many of the children we deliver shoe boxes to will receive nothing else all year, so it is a great practical and fun way to bring the joy of Christmas into a child's life.
