Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

blogThis is eight-year-old Denisa. She lives in a small room with her mother and elderly grandmother. Both her mother and grandmother suffer from serious health problems. The family lives in a very rural community where it is not always easy to make ends meet. They keep chicken, ducks and pigs as a means of survival.

We have known Denisa to be a very fragile little girl. She is underweight for her age and the lack of space and the responsibility at home weigh heavy on her little shoulders.

denisaBy being part of our Family Support Program we have been able to offer some hope to this little girl. Denisa now attends school regularly and we made sure that she is eating there daily. We visit her at home and at school and liaise with the teachers to offer Denisa the best support.

These days Denisa is happier and has put on a little weight. We will continue to work with Denisa, to ensure that she develops well and that one day she will, with the help of education and support, break free from the poverty circle.
