Help Romanian Orphans

Romania: A Beautiful Country With A Trying History

I was born in Romania during the Ceausescu regime During this time the country's dictator Nicolae Ceausescu not only put severe rationing on heating and food but also regulations on childbirth. He required woman to bear four children to the state. Meanwhile selling the majority of the country's natural products to increase revenue in order to cut Romania's debt. This left 100's of thousands of children homeless in the streets or in orphanages because their own families could not feed them. Today Romania is in a much better state however there is still an internal struggle. These orphans have grown up in need and families often move for months at a time to be able to care for their children (and themselves).

I will be going to Romania for a month. My journey is to help those children who were not able to be adopted, whether it was due to an illness, the inability to get consent from a parent or one of many other reasons it is hard to adopt a child from a foreign country. I was blessed to have an American family bring me to a place of comfort and opportunity when I was young. I feel it is my turn to help these children. Any items I receive will be taken in my personal luggage and given to the orphanage, if not directly to the children. I ask for a contribution that would go to a child that suffers everyday. Thank you, Multumesc!
Love & Peace
