Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

blogMihaela* and her children have been part of our Open Hands Support Program since the autumn of 2015. Along with supporting her children we have also been supporting Mihaela* with her last pregnancy. During her first pregnancies she use to be very isolated and alone, without any support.


The Open Hands intervention meant that Mihaela has this time been able to visit the doctor regularly. She received vital antenatal care which ensured her and her baby’s health.

When her time came to give birth she went to the hospital with, for the first time, a hospital bag which contained personal hygiene items, nappies and new clothing for her and the baby. Mihaela* has been deeply moved by our support, she decided to name her new baby girl after the Open Hands worker who came alongside her and continues to support her and her children.
