Orphanage projects in Romania

At the beginning of the post-Communist era, Romanian orphanages were grim, badly lit, and horribly overcrowded. The children were dirty, badly neglected and undernourished.

Thankfully, many of this has changed due to pressure and funding from the international community. Romania has made significant changes to the way orphans are cared for and the monstrous, bleak, Dickensian institutions have disappeared replaced instead by a number of smaller specialist foundations and an effective fostering system.

However, a lot is still to be done. Although the orphanages are now better resourced, the orphanages are still very keen for people like you to come and help care for the children. There are still simply not enough adult carers to give the children the individual attention that they deserve and need, particularly where the children have physical and mental challenges. This is where you come in. Your help is needed to help the staff with basic tasks like feeding, bathing and caring for the children as well as simply just spending time with individuals keeping them active with after school activities and games.

Note all projects working with children require a background check. This is an extra cost of about £10 but we will make the necessary arrangements. Parking tickets, speeding fines, and some criminal convictions will not prevent you from joining us; we simply check if you have any prior convictions relating to harming children.
