Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

fundraisingWe will have an Open Hands stall selling some lovely handmade crafts at this Fayre, including woolen products, pottery and handmade baskets by our families in Romania.

blogThis is Marta. She is 11 years old and has 7 younger siblings who she helps care for.

The youngest one is Simona whom she is holding. Marta and her siblings live in extreme poverty. They often don’t have enough food and have never received a Christmas gift in their lives.

We are so glad that these beautiful children are now part of our Open Hands Family Program. We will bring the joy of Christmas to them this year!


blogOpen Hands trustees Cees and Andrea are currently in Romania delivering warm winter clothes to our Family Support Program.

As you can see winter has arrived early in Romania! The children we support live in extreme poverty and can't afford warm winter clothing.

You may remember that we welcomed two boys Alex and Laszlo, along with their parents, into the Open Hands Family Support Program in January 2015.
