Romanian Orphanages


The Purpose of our Romanian Child Development Program is to demonstrate the love of Christ to children in targeted orphanages. Specifically, we will improve the quality of life within the orphanage and develop the children mentally, emotionally, physically, professionally, and spiritually.


The basic survival needs--food, clothing, and shelter, are obtained primarily from the Romanian government. Our contributions to basic survival needs will be supplemental. The long-term needs and medical and dental services will be our focus. These are the areas of concern, where we have had programs and/or would like to start programs.

Mental Development:

Conventional education
Infant Massage

Emotional Development:

Counseling programs
Infant early development programs.

Physical Development:

Medical Teams
Dental Teams

Professional Development:
