Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

newplay7We now have a new playground in the garden of The Rainbow House. We were able to buy a playground with a swing set which has a large slide and climbing rope. We also bought two pick-nick tables, a little slide and swing for the smaller ones, two football goals, a sandpit with lots of toys and two sun umbrellas.

The playground has opened up a whole new world of play for our children. Most of them don’t have a single toy at home and have never played on a playground before, so you can imagine that the children are enjoying it immensely.

Friedrich Froebel , the founder of the concept of kindergarten, observed that: “Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child’s soul.”

Froebel’s observation outlines that through play children can communicate freely what is in their hearts. Play can therefore be a beautiful therapeutic channel.

For our Rainbow House children play has become a healing power.

I would like to thank each one of you who helped finance this playground and those who support The Rainbow House – you are contributing to this healing and you are changing young lives. Thank you!
