Reaching Romania

Make a Difference in the Future of a Romanian Child

The European Semester Country Report for 2019 points out that 4 out of 10 children (41.7%) are living in poverty and social deprivation, one of the highest shares in the European Union, and Romania has the highest rate of in-work poverty in the EU (17.4%).  The Bashford Foundation was established to begin making a difference in the lives of these hurting people. Our first children’s home was opened in 2017. The children receive nutritious meals, Christian training, clothing, education, and in turn the children experience the joys of being a child. Christian house-parents provide loving guidance and support.  The Children’s Home plans to expand to include more children in the years to come and they need your support.
