Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

trip1To celebrate the beginning of the new school year, our new member of staff Iulia, took the children together with their teachers on a day trip.

The children we support live very isolated lives in small, rural villages. Iulia wanted the children to experience something completely different, outside the usual village life. She also wanted to give the children the opportunity to socialise and make new friends.

Iulia reports that the trip was a great success. They went to the Planetarium where the children learned about the planets and stars. Afterwards the children were taken to a playpark – playing on slides and swings is something the children never experience in their isolated villages, so it was a wonderful experience for the children.

Then Iulia took the children to the zoo; there the children were amazed by the cleverness of some of the animals. The children then visited a pottery where they saw how lumps of clay were formed into beautiful objects. Afterwards Iulia took the children to visit the ancient monastery Sucevita, built in 1584. There Iulia had arranged a wonderful meal which was laid out and donated by the nuns of the monastery. It was a special moment in the children’s lives to have a feast prepared for them on white table cloths.

The highlight of the trip was visiting the salt mine of Cacica where the children played, laughed and ran around so freely.

At the end of the day the children returned home with beautiful memories and new friends. What a wonderful experience! The teachers who came along to the trip enjoyed the experience very much and photos will be placed inside the school. It was a great way to strengthen our links with the local schools.
