It is the season to reflect on Jesus’ birth and the message He brought to mankind. It is a message of reconciliation, love and hope. We learn from His example to serve with humbleness and faith those who happen to be born in less fortunate conditions.
Wanting to provide the best for your children is something that is quite natural, but all too often it’s not possible.
We want to thank you being part of our extended family and helping us to provide the opportunities needed so God’s plan can unfold for the needy in Romania, whether it’s those who have grown up in orphanages or those who come from low-income families. Thank you for your priceless support!
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
The Good Samaritan team

“You Don't Know What You Have Until It's Gone” - this expression is used many times during life and today, we want to use it as we talk about one of our programs – our dental program. When you get to the point where you can’t eat because of a lack of teeth, or you’re embarrassed to smile, or you suffer days on end as you don’t have enough money even for a extraction, only then you’ll understand how much you appreciate healthy teeth.
Several of our beneficiaries are in great need of help with their teeth. Living in the state orphanage of Romania, under the conditions of limited financial subsidy, many youngsters dental care needs were neglected and with the years and the lack of on-time intervention, became severe. Not having permanent jobs, working seasonally or earning too little many are facing the impossibility to pay their own dental care expenses. Our dental assistance has enabled beneficiaries of the dental program not only to have a new look but also a much better self-esteem and health in general.
Join us in developing our dental program and helping bring back a smile to the faces of so many. Donate today!
The end of May and beginning of June were full of celebrations for high schools across the country as 12th grade students celebrated their graduation from high school. As hundreds of students, parents, teachers and friends joined together to celebrate the end of their school year, Good Samaritan had the pleasure of participating in the celebrations and continuing its tradition in awarding scholarships of 1200 lei to the top achieving students.
This year, Good Samaritan celebrated its 10th year of awarding scholarships at “Samuil Vulcan” National College (CNSV), the 5th year of scholarships at “Ioan Ciordas” Technical College (CTIC) and the 4th year of scholarships at the Pedagogical Vocational High School Nicolae Bolcas. In addition to awarding those who were finishing high school, our program extended to those with outstanding results in the 8th grade at CNSV and Nicolae Popoviciu Gymnasium School who from September will be starting high school.
