Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

geschenkWe had a wonderful Christmas party with the families from our Family Support Program in Gheorgheni. Altogether 52 children and their parents came. We wanted the party to be something special for the children, something that made them experience the beauty and love of Christmas.

To make sure all the kids had plenty of space to play we rented a large room from the local Catholic Church. We found a beautiful, tall Christmas tree and decorated it. We also met with a local catering company and ordered a three course meal. Finally, we began decorating the tables, playing Christmas music.

It was such a beautiful moment when all our children came through the door. They all looked so clean, dressed in their best clothes. It was so nice to have a party just for them, to see their little faces light up. I felt that just for a little while they were lifted out of poverty into another friendlier world. A world where sadness, fear and hunger does not exist. A world where no-one is pushed away, discriminated or forgotten. For those hours they could just be kids without any worries. It was beautiful to see.
