As the nights draw in, please spare a thought for our pensioners in Petrosani, Romania.
Lonely, cold, hungry and desperately poor, the outreach program run by our Community Centre gives vital support to these poor old people.
Can you help us raise enough to provide food parcels and fuel throughout the bitterly cold Romanian winter?
Mrs. Ana Cimpei (above) is 87 and lives with her 50 year old son who has multiple special needs.
They live in a house with 2 rooms, a small kitchen and an outside toilet
Ana receives a small government pension, but struggles to make ends meet, and suffers from early stage dementia, as well as various physical problems which affect her mobility .She is visited regularly by social workers and volunteers from Speranta Colonie, our community centre in Petrosani
She needs help with basics such as food, clothes, shoes, vitamins and minerals, and firewood for the winter.
With your help we can ensure Ana is less lonely, and is warm and well fed this winter.
Please donate whatever you can this Christmas, by clicking the link above, and dont forget to Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer.
