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
Volunteer week 'Bucovina Blitz' has started! With our partner the association “Door to Home” in Radauti, we are building for families in need of a home! ❤️

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.
Beiuș, 20 mai 2019 – For Beiusians from Good Samaritan, it’s not only scholarships, medical or housing programs for young people from orphanages that represent a desirable impact in the community but also the transfer of expertise. On Saturday 18th May 2019, Good Samaritan participated for the third time as a partner in the annual relay “Companies for the Community” held in Radauti by the association Door to Home. “We went with our team with our general accumulated experience and specifically from the relay “Running for a cause”. The desire is to provide the know-how and to inspire other organizations and volunteers to do good in their communities.” Said Nikolina Ciorna, Vice-President of Good Samaritan.
The Bucovinian partners quickly learned the work method, each year involving volunteers from companies in the region, from the RuNNuuti club and local high school students, as well as raising funds from donations. This year they attracted two ‘novel’ volunteer runners: Nistor Tatar from Radauti and Peter Costea from Houston, Texas, USA. Living and working 10,000 km away, the first being the mayor of Radauti and the second, a lawyer established in the American metropolis. The two had never seen each other until Saturday, May 18, when both of them discovered a few things in common: a passion for running, plenty of grey hair and engaging in charitable action!
