Hope Starts with a Meal: Supporting Ukrainian Orphans in Romania

Help us make a difference! After the war in Ukraine, millions of displaced children found refuge in Romanian Orphanages with the help of Good Neighbours. However, ensuring three daily meals for them is becoming increasingly challenging due to limited resources.

Your support is vital! A $10 donation can provide a child with everything they need for one day. Let's create a safe and healthy environment for these children to grow, play, and learn.

Join us and make a positive impact! Visit our GoFundMe to donate and change lives today.

Children and families are suffering and need urgent help.

Children are in danger


Conflict is not a new concept for children in Ukraine, a country that has experienced years of violence.

Still, having to leave their homes due to the recent Russian attacks is amplifying the emotional impact of war. They are scared and hungry.

Please donate now: help us provide shelter, food, water, hygiene supplies, mattresses, blankets, psychological support, and safe transportation to prevent human trafficking near the borders.
