World Vision Romania
World Vision Romania has launched the community development program “Future donator”, inviting individual donators to get involved in changing the future of a child in the rural environment and that of the entire community where he lives through monthly donations of 68 RON. Thus, every person donating for a child is really helping all of the children living in that community to have a chance at a better future. The program takes place in villages in the counties of Dolj, Vâlcea, Cluj and Vaslui.
With only 68 RON per month, the donator can help the sponsored child, as well as other children in the community, to have access to education, medical services, to be protected and to actively participate in turning the community into a better place. Their parents shall also have more professional and entrepreneurial opportunities. At the same time, the donor will be able to meet the child that he is supporting, will be able to write to him or meet him. The donor receives monthly information about the progress in the community and sees how, slowly and with his help, a child and, at the same time, an entire community is transformed.
Habitat for Humanity Romania
Raisa, one year old and Mădălin, three years old, have a chance to start over, along with their mother, Loredana. They are going to move into a new house, where they will be able to enjoy their childhood. Loredana did something that moved a whole country. The woman, who comes from a large and extremely poor family, returned a wallet that she had found on the street to the police. The wallet contained 1.000 RON and documents and Loredana said that she had never had that much money, but that she never thought about keeping the wallet. When she found the wallet, Loredana was going to the village hall in order to ask for 15 RON to buy milk for her one year old daughter. Habitat for Humanity Romania, with the support of a national television company, of some other companies and good people, started building a house for Loredana and her children. The house is being built in Berca, Buzău.
How you can help Loredana start over:
- Donate to the Habitat for Humanity Romania account. Details on Habitat.ro
- Be a volunteer in building the house! Volunteers on the Habitat for Humanity Romania construction site must bear their own transportation, equipment and food expenses and make a donation to support the need to live decently. Ask for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
