HOPE Project Updates - New Horizon Romania
New Horizon Romania has had a very busy winter season with a number of projects on the go serving the local communities and helping children in need. This month we wanted to share a few updates from Romania and the results of your support for these ongoing programs and projects . . .
INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL WORKSHOP – Galati, Romania
6 children will now have normal lives as a result of the surgeries performed at the medical workshop in Galati, Romania. Thank you very much to Dr. Mircea Ardelean from Salzburg, Austria for leading this team and to Dr. Anca Stefanopol, head of Paediatric Surgery at the St. John hospital in Galati, Romania, for heading up the event along with her team. This is a new partnership for us and we were very pleased with the great results! It was wonderful to hear the heartfelt gratitude of the families whose children were able to benefit as a result of this workshop.
WINTER SHOES FARM 11
The winter shoes project started a couple of weeks early this year at one of the farms. We had our friends Wrenetta and Lia from Canada helping this year and the kids were very excited to receive shoes and boots for the coming season!
WINTER SHOES FARM 10
Distributed part 2 of our Winter Shoes Project with the help of Ron Kubek from Canada. Izabella, our Mobile Classroom teacher, did another great job of getting shoes and socks for 78 children this year. It was a windy brisk -11 degrees, but once we turned the van around to help block the wind, the sunshine felt good!
CHRISTMAS HAMPERS 2018
This year’s Christmas Hamper project was the most organized yet, distributing food, necessities, and gifts to over 300 people this year! Thanks to the organizational skills of our team member, Cornelia Iacob, things ran smoothly and efficiently! Our volunteers this year were Ron Kubek and a small team of youth from our farm project, who were only toddlers when this project began some 11 years ago!
