Located in Eastern Europe, Romania is known for its beautiful landscape and historical castles. Although Romania has a challenging history, the country has worked to improve social systems to serve its people over the past 30 years. Even with the progress that has been made, there are many children and vulnerable families that remain in chronic poverty, leading to separation due to lack of resources. There are many opportunities all over Romania to serve children and families at risk of separation or social exclusion.
(un)adopted partners with an organization ministering to orphaned and vulnerable children through homework clubs, food and clothes distribution, and discipleship programs. Historically, the Roma population in Romania have been excluded and discriminated against in society. Our partners work to bridge the gap and minister to vulnerable children and families in Romania.
(un)adopted’s partner has established and built lasting relationships in several Roma villages around the Fagaras area where the staff meets physical and spiritual needs on a weekly basis for the members of these communities. Our partners in Romania coordinate Homework Clubs in these locations, with the desire to provide a safe and stable environment for children to improve academic skills, but more importantly, be exposed to the gospel. Our partners also serve young people who are aging out of orphan care by providing discipleship opportunities, life skills, and emotional support in order to help them successfully enter into society not only as healthy adults, but as believers in Christ.
Our partners have opened their center to house nearly 30 Ukrainian refugees. They are working daily to provide resources and food for refugees in their country and assist with transporting supplies over the Ukraine border. They are looking to provide trauma support and training for displaced families in the near future. Other friends of (un)adopted in Romania are helping with food, lodging, and transportation of hundreds of Ukrainian refugees.
