Rating: 5 stars  

I have personally worked with this ministry for multiple years. Livada is an ethical and fiscally responsible non-profit organization. I would recommend it to anyone seeking to invest or donate to a ministry that helps children.

This is the best place for a kid to be raised, helped, take care of, loved and nurtured!!! Here I found people with a genuine heart to help and love those who are helpless and were unloved! But now they are loved and have hope for tomorrow!

I am blessed to be a part of Livada's story. The ministry is holistic. Livada Orphan Care is helping abandoned babies, preschoolers, school aged kids and teens, and even young adult orphan graduates by sharing the Good News with them AND offering practical hope. Most importantly they are trying to find Romanian forever families for the abandoned kids and offering training to the at-risk Roma kids families so that they can stay together and work their way out of poverty. Livada daily cares for 40+ kids in their full time care, 300+ orphan kids in state care, and 200+ at-risk Gypsy kids. The LOC team is AMAZING and so are the volunteer opportunities year round.

I really appreciate all of the work and organized thought that goes into helping the Romanian children and their community through Livada Orphan Care. All of the staff are genuine and I look forward to continuing to work with them this year. As internship coordinator for the summer of 2013, I will be helping with the organization of interns to spend 10 weeks in Romania working with the children.

I have served with the Livada Staff in the passed and have followed the Livada ministry from its infancy. 'Blessed people bless people' is the best was to describe the Livada team and all the kids, caregivers, policy makers and surrounding community they touch!

Livada Orphan Care has shown tremendous love and passion for the abandoned children of Romania. I have been blessed to work with them for five summer and serve along side them in day camps. They provide for the physical, spiritual, educational, psychological, and health related needs of these children. They serve above and beyond and provide amazing opportunities and training for people who wish to volunteer and serve along side them in order to bless these children and help give them a better life.

I have been able to volunteer and intern with Livada Orphan Care for the past 6 years. Their organization changes the lives of many orphans and gypsies everyday through summer camps, discipleship programs, mentor programs, group homes, prevention of abandonment, and cradle love and care! I haven't wanted to work with any other organization for mission trips every summer! They are determined Christ followers with a strong mission to show a Father to the fatherless!

I have volunteered with Romania as a member of short-term mission teams and as a summer intern. Each of my experiences with Livada has been eminently fruitful--the methods, motivations, and vision of Livada's staff evidence a profound compassion for the orphans and at-risk children they serve. Their work is undoubtedly both important and effective.
