Counselling for 300 children in Romania

Counselling for 300 children in Romania

Dear supporter, 

 

We hope you are well and you are managing to stay afloat amidst these rough times we are all passing through. 

As we all know, children probably are the most vulnerable to these constant changes and instability we are facing. We are continuously doing our best to support our most vulnerable groups and create activities for them to help them through these challenges. 

As part of our constant efforts, we have been coordinating this week an English Summer Camp for over 60 orphans, in partnership with a Swiss charity called WeTomorrow. During this week, WeTomorrow volunteers have conducted English classes, educational and sport activities for orphans in the area. In the afternoon, all volunteers have helped transform a mundane meeting room into one of the best educational centres for orphans. The room has been equipped with desks, 8 laptops, a videoprojector, bookshelves, and a nice castle with stairs for them to relax and read. We aim to fill all of the bookshelves with over 1000 books for children aged 6 - 18. 

It has been a hectic week for everyone involved within the project. Om Saturday, the 14th August we will conduct the handover ceremony, where the WeTomorrow group will present their work of this week. 

The multimedia centre will serve over 120 orphans on a regular basis and we are most delighted that we could offer them such an opportunity. 

You are more than happy to join in our project and support with whatever you can. Every small step in the right direction counts. 

You can find a small sneak peak at the work volunteers conducted this week. 

Again, thank you and happy weekend everyone.

Dear supporter, 

 

I believe there is no doubt that the entire global situation has had emotional repercurssions on all of us. 

 

Children and youngsters, especially the ones Te Aud Romania is serving have been seriously affected. Our solicitations for therapy have massively increased and we have been working hard to encourage these children see some light at the end of the tunnel. 

Our therapists have used cognitive behavioural therapy to modifiy automatic negative thoughts, including excessive fears of contamination; hopelessness about maintaining social connections during hard times. The Covid related inactivity and loss of regular daily routines is continuously impacting the emotional stability of already emotionally deprived children. 

Connecting with these children has become even more complicated; even though we made use of telephone and video (where it was possible) to deliver pshyctherapy remotely. The learning curve has been steep, especially for children not accustomed to use technology in their daily activities. 

Pshychotherapy clearly plays an important role in helping these children overcome these tough times. As such, we are now reopening our one to one sessions; respecting the Covid measures to give these children better fighting chances on their road to recovery. 

We are determined to serve our children and our communities and every little penny counts toward improving these children's lives. 

Thank you for continuously empowering these children!

Dear supporter, 

 

We trust you are well and our email finds you in good spirits. 

Our children have been through rough times recently. Our purpose is to be able to continuously support them through these challenging times and bring smiles on their faces - especially now at Christman and New Year. 

For this reason, we would appreciate if you would choose to partner with us and support them now more than ever. 

The holidays are coming and they need to feel loved, appreciated and cared for. 

Any support that you are able to give is better than nothing. 

We thank you for continuously understanding the importance these children have for the future!

Dear supporter, 

 

The tough times we are facing have been a learning curve for all of us. Unfortunately, the most affected are the vulnerable groups we are supporting. 

Ever since March up to current times, we have moved our counselling into online. This has had its advantages, giving us the chance to communicate quicker and more often with the children we support and their families. 

On the downside however, the pandemic has made it more difficult for vulnerable groups; with limited acces to internet or no digital devices, to ask for help. 

We are currently working our way through equipping children in need and their families with the neccesarry equipment to grant them access to digital tools and support them through the challenges they are facing. 

Our mission is still the same, yet facing even a bigger problem in the current climate. Yet, we are determined to stay and continue to support vulnerable children and their families! Unfortunately, the people who have the least, are the most foresaken! With your help, we will leave noone behind! 

We thank you for your continuous interest and support!

Dear Donors, 

 

Our life has changed and we are all in this together. The effects of the pandemic have touched each and everyone of us. However, vulnerable children are most exposed to the dangers of the crisis. Situations such as poverty, emotional trauma, rural isolation have become even more worrying now more than ever. 

Unfortunately, our work is based in an area that has become the biggest outbreak in the country. Schools have been closed and will continue to be closed for a while. 

We are working hard through these challenging times to refocus and readapt our strategy in order to support our children and make sure we minimise the impact that this can have on their well-being. 

Our team is working on not interupting their non formal education. We have adapted our communication and methods to serve these children, because they are our future. 

We can't do it alone. 

We make an appeal to our supporters to contribute alongside us, so that we can continue to support our children through these times. 

Every little counts. 

 

Thank you!
