REACH 2 ROMANIA
Teius is a small town of approximately 7,000 people in Alba County
Our work here started at Christmas 1995, and is mostly directed through a local charity registered in Romania: Fundatia Emanuel Betania - established February 2003.
Over the years we have supported daily and weekly activities: homework club, painting club, guitar club, mandolin club, violin cluband orchestra. A weeklyproject helping mentally disabled children. Summer holiday camp and support a Christmas shoebox program at the town kindergarten and school. We have provided food, winter heating, second hand computers, musical instruments, childrens clothing, and carried out visiting within the local orphanages. We have sponsored the junior football team 'Teius Rapid' in the Alba County League.
We continue to send clothes to support families and inmates of the large jail in nearby Aiud.
In 2018 the buildings in Teius were registered as a kindergarten with long-program for working parents. This has secured external funding to support the work, which was necessary due to our declining finances.
Teius continues to be the main destination for our financial aid.
