My visits to different orphanges that originated under Ceausescu, and remain under current government, have inspired me to research several nonprofit organizations now helping children in Romania. "Angels in Need" is one of the most effective homes for needy children who have no family. The caretakers have opened their hearts and given hands to these sweet children at Angels in Need. The devotion and determination of Simona Stewart, the director, is incredible. This home for children only needs financial donations....for it has everything emotionally.
"ANGELS IN NEED" IS SUCH A CARING ORGANIZATION THAT HELPS CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AND THEIR FAMILIES AS WELL AS EDUCATING THE COMMUNITY ABOUT THESE NEEDS. THEY ARE LOCATED IN A SMALL COLLEGE TOWN THAT HAS A GROUP AT THE COLLEGE THAT IS SO INTERESTED IN THESE CHILDREN WITH THE SPECIAL NEEDS. NEEDLESS TO SAY, THESE YOUNGER CHILDREN RESPOND TO THE COLLEGE STUDENTS REALLY WELL, AND WHO KNOWS WHAT SEEDS WILL BE SOWN IN THEIR LIVES. THE ALL- VOLUNTEER LEADERS COVER EVERY ASPECT OF THE CHILD'S LIFE AND THE FAMILY'S LIFE---SOCIAL INTERACTION WITH OTHER CHILDREN AND ADULTS, RECREATIONAL AND EDUCATIONAL. ONE SPECIAL THING THEY DO IS TO REACH OUT TO NEW FAMILIES AS WELL AS OTHERS IN THE COMMUNITY WHO DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO TURN SINCE THEIR CHILDREN DO NOT FIT IN WITH ANY OTHER GROUP. THE ORGANIZERS DO NOT TAKE A SALARY AND GIVE FREELY FROM THEIR HEART. THEY HAVE ALSO ADOPTED 2 SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN AND ARE CHANGING THEIR LIVES. CMB
I love that donations go DIRECTLY TO CHILDREN IN NEED locally and internationally. There are no salary or facility expenses at Angels in Need. It is run by dedicated, caring and experienced volunteers.
This is a wonderful charity helping fund a very worthwhile and deserved need. It is done with volunteer staff and expenses are a very small part of the total budget. We feel our donations are extremely well used.
