Why Help Romania?
Our Romanian Partners
Home Care of the Elderly
An evaluation by the Romanian authorities said the programme was … “unique in Romania in the high standards of care and dedication to the old people who are cared for”.
A further 200 to 300 people attend our Day Centre.
This was renamed The Dr Stefan Ciobanu Day Centre in honour of our friend and colleague, Stefan Ciobanu, who was killed in a car accident. Stefan inspired and led the project. It will remain a great legacy for a good man who died so tragically young
Arts Therapy for the Disabled for children and adults with special needs
Our Impart projectcontinbues to train carers in various regions of Romania.
They also deliver our programme of therapeutic arts to hundreds of severely disabled children and adults in orphanages and psychiatric hospitals.
With our various partners we continue to develop Impreuna (meaning "together") the national network in Romania of people working through the arts for children and adults with disability.
We publish 4 “Impreuna” magazines a year and distributed them to 2,100 key individuals, free of charge.
Our interactive community arts website is being redesigned and relaunched. This will be an invaluable resource for the dedicated, but all too often badly isolated, workers in this field.
Mobile Health Care and Mobile Pharmacy
We continue this long running project by delivering vital health care and medicines to thousands of people in remote villages in NE Romania.
This has been called the poorest area in Europe.
The project also donates children’s clothes, basic food supplies, chickens, goats to hundreds of the poorest families.
We have recently expanded our work in this area
with a major grant to set up a team of Mobile Community
Workers to help these families, who are often badly isolated
in hard-to-reach villages in the countryside.
Over the past 20 years we have spent millions of pounds on our charity work in Romania, as well as many gifts-in-kind
We also paid for various direct charity expenses in the UK such as sponsoring the costs of expert volunteers.
We fund various Romanian charities and groups directly who are delivering help to those most in need through various programmes.In particular
Our partner charity Fundatia de Sprijin Comunitar - The Community Support Foundation
When we helped our Romanian employees set up their own autonomous charity we would have been very surprised - and thrilled - to see how much they have achieved. Here's how they summarised it:
In Bucharest we continue to support the Budimex, a major Children’s Hospital.
