Because every child of today determines the world of tomorrow.

“Siguranta pentru Copii” – (security for children) is a charity association committed to save at least some of the “abandoned children” in Romania from an existence in children’s homes or on the street by establishing and maintaining so-called “family houses”. These houses are comparable to the principle of the “SOS Children’s Villages”: A Romanian couple employed by the association – preferably parents themselves – provides for about ten abandoned children in one of the associations’ houses and thus enables them a life in the security and warmth of a (care -) Family.

The Ceausescu regimes’ dubious family policy, in which abortion and birth control were prosecuted, had serious consequences for the Romanian population long after the revolution. Many families were unable to adequately care for their children due to increasing poverty. Countless of these unwanted children ended up in overcrowded and neglected childrens’ homes, where they were supplied economically, but rather stored than cared for. Children who have to live in such a home for a while suffer significant damage. They “rock” or “bob” constantly, throw themselves on the ground, are slowed down or hyperactive: they all suffer from hospitalism.

About us
We give abandoned children in Romania the security of a family in houses where there is always someone there for them and further engage in structural help and development for the local community a variety of ways.

Our work
With 6-8 visits a year and a reliable partner, we support the children individually with holiday trips, excursions, camping trips, creative weeks and enable them sports, music lessons, dance, karate, football, language courses and more.
