Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

Open Hands is a registered charity in the UK and Romania that supports neglected and disadvantaged children in Romania. After witnessing the appalling living conditions of abandoned and destitute children we became determined to offer an escape route for the children.

Open Hands was formed in 2010 and today we support the poorest and most disadvantaged children in Romania; our aim is to provide for those without a loving family, secure home and education. Our motivation is to be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. As we continue to reach out to more children in need, we ask you to consider making a donation to enable us to transform even more lives.

JoskaThe Open Hands Team wishes you a great start to 2018! The Open Hands Christmas parties were enjoyed immensely and we went on to distribute 492 Christmas Shoe Boxes among very socially deprived and vulnerable children. It was a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas. This year we are looking forward to continue our vital work with all the trials and triumphs it may bring!
