Our story

For the past 28 years, Save the Children Iași has been making efforts to create a better, safer and happier world for the children that reach out for help while in a vulnerable situation. This whole time, driven by passion and devotion, alongside amazing partners and great people, we managed to build a better childhood for tens of thousands of kids that have been aided and informed about their rights to education and to a healthy development. Every single day, in the three establishments of Save the Children Iași, we provide a warm meal, counselling services and professional support for over 120 beneficiaries whose childhood is hanging by a thread. In order to continue our efforts of building a kinder and more friendly environment for these little heroes, we need your support. Join us and make a donation that will surely fill one more child’s heart and make them forget about cold, hunger and poverty.

Andrew’s Story

Andrew has to walk to school every single day, three kilometers by foot. That wouldn’t be such a bad thing if it was warm and sunny all the time. But so it happens that some days, especially during cold seasons, turn the field he has to walk through into a big, cold swamp, full of mud. And maybe that wouldn’t be an obstacle for some people, but Andrew wakes up every morning in a cold, damp shelter that he calls home, with no electricity or running water and wearing his worn out summer shoes doesn’t help him cross the cold puddles and the deep mud. And when he gets to school, all dirty and pinched with cold, his colleagues laugh at him. When you don’t see it with your own eyes, it’s as if his world doesn’t exist, even if it’s a few steps away from you. When you don’t live in it, it doesn’t hurt. In this world, there are no toys, no holidays, no clean clothes, only ”Will I have anything to eat tomorrow?” and „How do I stop them from laughing at me”.

Marie’s Story

There is this little girl, her name is Marie, she loves to play and her smile is kind and affectionate. Sometimes it makes you feel like the whole world could fit in her bright smile. The thing is that she only smiles when everything around her is the way it used to be, the way it’s supposed to be: when she can get to school, go to sleep with a full belly and when her parents don’t fight because of all the burdens and poverty. Marie’s nine years old and can’t remember the last time she got a new toy.

It wasn’t always like that; she remembers when she was “little” and she had everything. It wasn’t easy either, but it was much better. Back then, her parents had a job and their family didn’t live in an improvised home in the outskirts of the city. Their one-bedroom apartment was home for all of them and mommy and daddy didn’t have to deal with so many shortages. But that was then, when they had a job and rain wouldn’t get in through the roof, nor did little Marie skip school because she didn’t have the so-needed supplies that the rest of her class did.

4G Tablet

A modern learning device, connected to the internet, represents a door that opens a whole new world – tales of the past, current findings, animals, oceans, planets – everything on one screen. A tablet given to an underprivileged child means a real shot at normality, especially in times when school relies more and more on electronic devices and internet to teach its pupils.

Backpack with school supplies

If a backpack full of supplies is a magical bridge towards knowledge… What’s it like without it? How does it feel to attend school without so much as the basics? Or how do the others look at and accept you when you simply do not have a pencil box, a rubber, a backpack, a pen or a notebook? One pupil, one backpack is the normality that we aim to achieve, because what an equipped backpack truly means for them is a real chance at learning and changing their future.

Birthday Cake

There are children out there who have never blown the candles on their birthday cake, as well as children who haven’t had a cake at all for their birthday, ever. And your birthday is that one day that you look forward to and remember each year, sometimes even for the rest of your life. Your birthday is yours and it has to be exactly like you’ve dreamed of – with balloons, friends, gifts and, obviously… with cake.

Christmas Present

Winter holidays’ magic comes right out of Santa’s sack! Christmas presents are a kid’s greatest joy during wintertime. A toy, a coat, a sleigh, a bike or whatever Santa’s preparing makes for warmer holidays and opened hearts. After all, there’s a good reason why there’s only one Santa Claus around.

Dental check-up/treatment

The life of a vulnerable child has many shortages compared to a normal one. Among the burdens and the challenges, situations where a doctor is needed happen quite often. A simple dental check-up or a proper treatment are usually heavily postponed if not ignored altogether, thus further complicating the already difficult life of an underprivileged child.

Thank you!

We could use all the help we could possibly get! All of us at Save the Children Iași see how the smallest form of involvement turns directly into happiness for those who need our support. It’s rather difficult to quantify and explain… It’s pure joy that touches us through bright smiles, innocent laughter and sparks of hope. Hope that tomorrow will be better and trust that they have a chance in life. These children’s happiness is the most natural and precious way of showing gratitude. With each new person that gets involved, a story is rewritten, a happy ending doesn’t seem so far away. Through every one of us, hope makes way in these vulnerable children’s lives, and for that – we THANK you.
