Building hope In Romania

A promise broken and a promised restored

The Roma community of eastern Europe faces many struggles.
Often stigmatised and on the fringes of society, extreme poverty is the norm. 
In a small village near  Cluj, Romania, Livu and his family were struggling to make ends meet. 
Livu had been working for a local cattle rancher, who had promised to build him a home in return for his labour.
Despite completing his work, the promise was broken. Livu had to move his wife and five small children into a run-down, single-room shack. 
The small house was crumbling, exposed to the bitter cold and without basic amenities for cooking or sanitation. 
Suffering from poor health, made all the worse by living in such cold conditions, Livu did whatever small jobs he could to provide for his family. 
Through our local partners, CBN Europe’s Orphan’s Promise came alongside Livu and his family.
They helped build a new family home, allowing them to have a safe, dry, and warm place to raise their family.
With the house in place, work began on a second building.
Brick by brick, piece by piece; restoring hope and dignity to this family. 

“Brick by brick, piece by piece; restoring hope and dignity to this family.”

The SEED Project

As part of CBN Europe’s Orphan’s Promise SEED projects, a storehouse for seed and a shelter for animals was constructed.
SEED projects seek to provide sustainable sources of food and livestock for those who need it most. 
Not only does this give food for the family, but allows avenues of income to be established for future seasons. 
Together – with local tradesmen - Livu and his family were able to build something that will not just bring income and security for the next few years, but instead, build something that brings hope to future generations. 
A brighter future for his family and community; a warm place to call home and a safe, secure environment to raise his family. 
Livu says:“Thank you so much for the support you provided. For the house and the stable and for my family.”
It is because of your giving that projects like this, and families just like Livu’s can be changed.  

“Thank you so much for the support you provided. For the house and the stable and for my family.”
