how can you help as a sports-fundraiser?

well, it’s pretty simple: you help the children and the families we support every year. you keep children at home, with their families, parents and siblings – and away from orphanages. it’s so simple, but your help means so much. and for that we thank you!

how you help, how we help

  • using the form below, you tell us which event you want to participate in. alternatively, send a message to loredana [at] hopeandhomes.ro, or call 0731 497 402.

team hope since the beginning of the year until now

in january 2022, our plans for the beginning of the year were different, but the reality of the recent events in ukraine made us turn our attention to the children who cross our border. for them, team hope gathered at băneasa forest run. find out what we continue to do for Ukraine refugee children here.

moreover, we continue on the commitment to build a house for a family with 7 children who are in great need. the parents, the seven children, including 2 young adults, live in 2 makeshift rooms made out of beams and pressed clay, which were affected by a recent fire (find out more about the family here).

so that the 7 children won’t be placed in an orphanage, the family needs a proper home. they deserve a home like every child does, a safe place where they can live decently and do their homework. a home that is no longer at risk of catching fire. the parents, the 2 young adults of the family, the mayor and the neighbours intend to help build the house, and the town hall is going to take care of all the necessary documents, including connecting the home to utilities.

you and all of us will have to build the rest. let’s make a normal, decent home for seven children. brick by brick from every mile run.

if there’s something we’ve missed, write us at loredana [at] hopeandhomes.ro or contact us at 0731 497 402.

team hope in 2021

although the sports events were held under special conditions, we took our sneakers out of storage to give marina a scholarship for her 3 years of studies. together, we made it! conscientious as we know her, the first thing Marina did with her scholarship was to buy a laptop for online college classes.
