Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

2016 07 05 13.28.42A couple of weeks ago our German Open Hands trustee Andrea van Hoven returned from her first visit to The Rainbow House, below you can read about her first impressions:

I was very excited to see the children`s program with my own eyes in the newly renovated Rainbow House when I came to Romania in the beginning of July! What I saw moved me deeply: I found a wonderful and peaceful place full of hope for ‘our’ children. Here they finally have a place to play, to eat and to laugh. Thank you very much to everyone who has helped us to realize this project and who also will continue supporting its running!

On the last day of our journey we had a party for the children in The Rainbow House garden – it was something the children had never experienced before. We decorated the garden with balloons, covered the grass with blankets, prepared different games and made sandwiches, melon, juice and sweets for the children. We wanted the children to be at the centre of attention and we wanted them to have an untroubled time full of joy; for them to just be children. 22 children joined us on the day. We played feed the lion, played tin throwing games, made bubbles and did face painting. Some of the children wanted to do everything at the once! Others were rather shy and meek. It was a beautiful day to remember. The children did not want to go home at the end of it. Ice cream for the way home made it easier to say goodbye.
