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.

unspecifiedAV01V1VSWe are very fortunate to welcome Iulia to the Open Hands team. Iulia joined our team as a full-time worker in June, after many months of voluntary support. Alongside her husband, she now supports over 40 children in rural communities.

2016 07 05 13.28.42A couple of weeks ago our German Open Hands trustee Andrea van Hoven returned from her first visit to The Rainbow House, below you can read about her first impressions:

I was very excited to see the children`s program with my own eyes in the newly renovated Rainbow House when I came to Romania in the beginning of July! What I saw moved me deeply: I found a wonderful and peaceful place full of hope for ‘our’ children. Here they finally have a place to play, to eat and to laugh. Thank you very much to everyone who has helped us to realize this project and who also will continue supporting its running!

blogMihaela* and her children have been part of our Open Hands Support Program since the autumn of 2015. Along with supporting her children we have also been supporting Mihaela* with her last pregnancy. During her first pregnancies she use to be very isolated and alone, without any support.
