    We have been working with vulnerable children and families in Romania for over 12 years now. As our work grows, especially these past years, the Romanian local authorities have become more aware of us. They have noticed the profound changes taking place in the lives of the children we work with and have asked us to begin our work in a very impoverished, rural community. 

  • Changing Lives

    I would like to report on a beautiful project we run, called The Rainbow House (RH). The RH was opened almost three years ago. It is a place where children who live in the local slum come and receive care. Last year The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation recognised the wonderful work that is done there by donating to the project.

      I crossed the border into Romania while the weather was really very hot and I was happy and thankful that I arrived safely and could enjoy this beautiful landscape during my journey. First I met our team in Suceava, a city in the northeast of Romania and we visited our families there. It was very nice to see the progress the children have made and how happy everyone is to be looked after by Open Hands. We talked, played, did crafts and laughed a lot and the children had much fun - blowing bubbles which are still their favourite!Then I drove on to Gheorgheni and started my 3 weeks at the Rainbow House. There we had team meetings almost every morning, read the bible, prayed together, and planned the day. I went together with our employee Olga to offices, doctors, hospitals and schools to manage different things. During this time we had very good conversations with official people and I learned that the work of Open Hands is very much appreciated within the community. Sorry, it takes until the page opens, as the gallery contains a lot of photos!

  • Two Years Rainbow House

      After two years of Rainbow House the greatest novelty for the children still seems to be to sit around the table and eat together. It is beautiful to watch how well the children communicate with each other and how much they enjoy eating and being looked after.
