EVENT DATE: Nov 20, 2014
Our story started one year ago when at tv I saw a reportage about how old people are treated in Romania.
All my opinions changed about our sick system when I heard a nurse talking about old people; "what did they do wrong? Why? What`s our parent`s fault, for being alone and their pension is not enough for medicines, for propper food, for their utilities, for their bare necessities? What`s their fault for working an entire life and that the system has insured them a miserable pension below the level of subsistence?
What`s their fault for making sacrifices in order to provide us what they never had? How is it their fault if they suffer from hunger, from cold, sickness and the worst from solitude, and they wait in silence to cross over?"
Those words made me and my girlfriend reflect about all it`s happening with all the people who gave all of them for our future. We have to do something!
After three months we found the place, very nice and peaceful in the countryside, with a lot of green space. After long negotiation with the former owner we bought the building.
It has 7 bedrooms, 1 living room, 1 dining room, 2 storage, (350 square meters) and outside a swimming pool and 4500 square meters of green space.
Untill now our budget reached to buy the place, to provide the utilities and to provide in each bedroom a bathroom.
In order to complet our project we need funds to renovate the building, to furnish, and buy all we need to get start.
Our project is full of life and hopes, we believe in it, and we believe also in your help.
We believe in people with a big heart, where life is above than anything else, where love means each of us, humanity.
Thank you for your support!
Our idea is to support older people and offer them better conditions.
Our financial support was just our work and trust.
We believe in a better future.
