Supporting Neglected & Disadvantaged Children in Romania

curca3oct17I am wishing you all a Happy New Year with blessings and new opportunities. May we all play a part, however small, in changing this world to a more loving one. This year I am looking forward to continue my work amongst the poor in Romania with all the trials and triumphs it brings.


Another year has gone by and Open Hands has continued to bring love, hope and change to impoverished children. With your support we are breaking poverty circles and transforming the lives of the most destitute children of Romania.

maria1Maria is 14 years old and from Portugal. In her summer holidays Maria and her friends decided to do something beautiful for Open Hands. Here Maria shares why she decided to help children in Romania and how she and her friends managed to raise 500 euros for the charity. It is a beautiful thing when children help other children in need and set an example on how to make a difference.

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.
