CARE’s work in Romania

In Romania, CARE promotes the right of every child to a family. We started working here in 2003, with the sole focus of helping abandoned children. We work through a local organisation called SERA, to improve the lives of disabled and abandoned children.

Romania has a legacy from its communist era of large institutional children’s homes and orphanages, which do not offer a good environment for children to grow up. We work together with SERA to change this system, getting children out of institutional care and placing them with foster families.

CARE's impact

We work in 79 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.

About CARE

Founded in 1945 to send 'CARE packages' to people recovering from war, we have been fighting poverty in the world’s poorest countries for 70 years.

Our aims

We empower women and girls to fulfil their potential – because when one woman is helped out of poverty, she brings her family and community with her.

Your support

Your support is what makes our poverty-fighting work possible. You can trust us to spend our funds wisely and effectively to help people in need.
