From the beginning of Feed the Hungry UK’s work, we have have strong ties with the country of Romania. Working around the country through various partners, such as the Bread of Life orphanage, to provide food and resources to children who are left abandoned on the door steps of these humble Christian establishments.
Despite being in the European Union, Romania is still tarred by its communist past. The cities have begun to thrive but many villages are left without running water, clean sanitation facilities or a regular flow of food and medication. As you can imagine, with so many major issues still being worked through, Christmas is quickly forgotten and goes uncelebrated.
Christmas without joy, smiles or celebration is unimaginable for us here in the UK. So we resolved to spread the joy of Christmas to the orphans in Romania. We did this by creating an appeal that would provide sanitary products, food, school resources and bibles alongside boxes of presents which could be enjoyed, played with and shared among the children.
You responded! Over £6000 was giving to our Christmas Appeal in 2017 which meant that hundreds of children is Romania could experience the joy of Christmas once again.
Thank you for your generosity and kindness. Thank you for reminding these children that they are cared for and thought of, for displacing the pain of abandonment and replacing it with the joy of love.
