Review for Livada Orphan Care Inc, Plano, TX, USA
Livada Orphan Care provides support and care of children from newborns to teenagers. We, my family and I, had the opportunity to join Livada in Romania as volunteers. We hosted teens aged 15-18 for a week of music, athletics, arts & crafts, and games. The Livada full-time staff was everywhere, managing the week and keeping the volunteers and attendees on track, safe, and having a great experience. We could see the teens responding to the attention and fun and really enjoying themselves. It was a real summer break for everyone. Livada also hosted us on an tour of different opportunities for service as well; they provide orphan care Summer programs, after school, small group, and hospital volunteers. Our experience with Livada led to our continued support for the last 8+ years. The work they are doing with under-served children, providing them opportunities and changing lives, is inspiring. We enjoy reading the updates and newsletters and look forward to some day soon, we hope, going back to serve again.
