Casa Ray Orphanage - Dobreni

The Casa Ray orphanage is providing a safe home and place of refuge for 23 underprivileged and orphaned children.

The orphanage is in Dobreni, a small town in the north-east of Romania which suffers particularly high unemployment rates. Social and economic problems have contributed to high levels of crime in the area. Many of the children at the orphanage have one parent currently serving a long prison sentence. The orphanage recently took in four children whose mother was murdered by their father, a crime that they witnessed. Tragically this story is not so uncommon for many of the children at Casa Ray.

The orphanage cares for both boys and girls, aged between 5 and 16 years old. All of the children attend local schools and two of the older children are now studying at a secondary school in a nearby town. At the orphanage the children are given the love and security that they need and deserve. As well as counselling sessions to help them deal with the trauma in their lives, the children enjoy lots of fun activities, including a summer camp.

WER has funded a new well and water bore hole and is providing support for daily running costs. WER also provided bicycles for the children and has assisted in providing chlothing and other essential goods.
