Where we work, in rural North West of Romania

Life is really simple, many in wood & mud brick dwellings

Water is now plumbed to many dwellings but most are a stand pipe outside

Most live in one or two rooms

Cooking in the family home is basic

Four children and one bed share a room with parents

Our team in Romania, Pastor Daniel & Vetuta

Dani, Sarah, Tobi and Ella

Work from a local church where we base Pro Community Romania our sister charity

Inside we have a flexible arrangement to cope with worship and community functions

Sunday service

A kitchen was built in 2011 so meals could be served

The elderly are invited for meals

2014 saw the building of an extension to the church to support children's work

With little social support some try to live on £50 per month where the cost of living is the same as UK

The visit and the food are a welcome relief for so many isolated an lonely
