Romania

Poverty here is entrenched in isolated rural areas.

A lack of infrastructure affects everything

Romania’s economy has improved in recent years – but in rural areas where almost half the population live, a lack of infrastructure affects everything from schools to medical facilities. Since 2007, over one million Romanians have emigrated in search of greater opportunities, including parents who leave vulnerable children behind. 

Romania remains one of the most corrupt countries in Europe, according to Transparency International. It has also been singled out by Amnesty International for its prejudicial treatment of the Roma community, who make up as much as 10% of the country's population. 

We work in and around Sighisoara, Blaj, Victoria often in Roma communities. We are journeying with families out of desperate poverty. We also support vulnerable children, run a prison ministry, and support a care home for the elderly.

Hello for Sandu

Alexandru (Sandu) Danilenco has been the Manager for Romania since 2017. He says, "From year to year, more people in Romania are losing hope that the day will come when their social and spiritual conditions will improve. This is particularly true of rural communities, where most are unemployed and just waiting for the first opportunity to leave the country to find a job

"Even in such hopeless conditions, our team believe God is with us, and together with all people that support MWB, we can bring light and hope to the minds and hearts of discouraged people in our country. 

"We have the opportunity to help thousands of children and hundreds of families that struggle with diverse needs, and through all the things we do, we really show our neighbours the love of Jesus in a tangible way. From all our team and from all the people we care for, please receive our words of gratitude towards those who support us materially and prayerfully."
