This Christmas please spare a thought for Georgeta, and many other vulnerable elderly people preparing to survive another Winter in Romania.
Georgeta, 75, receives essential support from
 Providenta Divina
Georgeta is 75. She lives on her own in a small house with one room and a kitchen, no bathroom, and an outside toilet. She is lonely and isolated as her neighbours and family are too busy or cannot help her.
She receives a tiny state pension which is barely enough to buy food or the medication she needs for her asthma and hypertension. During the winter, she cannot afford to buy enough wood to keep her tiny house warm.

Working with Providenta Divina, we help a group of elderly ladies, including Georgeta. We already provide food parcels, help with shopping and home visits.

But we want to do more. 

Please donate whatever you can. As little as £5 will help to buy essential fuel over the Winter.

You can make a donation via this blog, or send your cheque to Humanity at Heart, 28 Keymer Road, Hassocks, West Sussex, BN6 8AN.

Many thanks.

HAH Shop Volunteers Party

We had a very succesful "do" last week at the White Horse in Ditchling. It was a great way to say thanks to the volunteers for all their hard work in the shop over the year. As you can see, a good time was had by all!

"Hope for Colony" community centre gets a facelift!

The essential works on the building have now been completed. The Centre has had new pipework, heating, and guttering, as well as internal and external decoration. It was very difficult for the staff and volunteers to carry on whilst the work was being done, but we hope that now they will have a clean, dry, warm building over the winter - good for both staff and beneficiaries.

The Boys move into the "House of Roses", Birlad

Good news from RAKE.  Razvan and Ionut have moved into their new home, now called "the House of Roses".  The boys left the Camine with nothing but the clothes they were wearing, so we were glad to have collected up a load of clothes from the shop, which Linda shipped out some weeks earlier.  It may be that we will provide some funding to kit all 4 youngsters out for the winter - proper boots and coats, hats and scarves.  The winters are very cold and snowy in Romania!  I hope to post some pictures from the house soon.
