Orphans assistance ministry
the "Iron Curtain" was torn down in 1989 numerous heart-wrenching
stories have been published about the orphan situation in Romania. While
the conditions in orphanages have improved, these children still hunger for
genuine love and acceptance.
10 years RMS has been ministering to these disadvantaged children. It is a
satisfying, yet challenging ministry! In addition to the Bible lessons, the
teachers aim to develop the social skills of these children, by interaction
with teachers and mentors. Our dedicated staff is involved at different levels:
Weekly Bible clubs - after school programs with
several groups of children from state-run orphanages and underprivileged from
the neighborhood. Every day of he week another group is brought in for a time
of games, Bible stories, crafts, computer classes, and, of course, treats.
Summer camps - every year we organize two
week-long camps for orphans of different ages. As you might imagine these are a
highlight for the children. They have fun, play games, eat good food, get out
of the city, and most importantly, learn about God's love.
Discipleship - in partnership with local
churches, we continue to follow-up their spiritual development even after
leaving the orphanage, to help them integrate in local churches and mature as
Foster care - as some children are moved from state run institutions into
foster care, we continue to provide for their physical and spiritual needs,
assisting the foster parents.
Needy families assistance - some of the children in the
orphanage have living parents, but have been abandoned or "given up"
because the family couldn't afford to feed and clothe the child. In this tragic
situation we look to help not only the children, but also the whole family.
Job placement assistance - children leaving the orphanage at
18 continue to receive assistance to find jobs and a place to stay.
