Positive hope for a new life for children at St Laurence, Cernavoda


Marin happy in his own room

St. Laurence, Cernavoda will soon be a refuge and home, for up to five children living with the merciless HIV virus, a home, where with help and supportive education they can grow to make a full and useful contribution to the community. The original house on the campus, Casa Veche, which is these days known as Casa Catherine is undergoing a comprehensive makeover to accommodate them. The redevelopment will ensure that their home fully complies with the new standards set for the care of children with disabilities. Although we are creating a home atmosphere the work is compulsory to obtain the relevant legal permits allowing Casa Catherine to be the real home the children long for.

Marin, shown in the accompanying photograph was the first resident to be admitted albeit on a provisional basis and he is just thrilled with his newly refurbished room. As a lad who has lived all of his life in care, this is the first room of his own he has ever had. This was made possible thanks to a kindness of Glynis Bonshor and friends who offered a two hundred pound (£200) donation to buy the essential furniture. A thrilled Marian was moved to tears as “No one has ever been so kind to me”.

Starting this makeover was easy, but turning the dream into reality it needs a little extra help from our CID UK family and friends.  All the rooms are freshly painted and most of the works in the bathrooms complete, to be fully operational to obtain all the necessary permits there are many things are still to be done. The five kids who are desperately waiting for their new home hopefully can count on the donations which might eventually come from friends and supporters in the UK generous folks who are willing to help them to survive and lead a normal life. The CID Ro team are doing their best to raise some much needed funds locally, the conversion work was started with money raised by them, but it is impossible to cover all the required expenses from local sources, especially within such a tight timetable.

For the sake of the children, Valentina and the CID Ro team are praying there are no major problems which can’t be overcome to allow children the home in Casa Catherine they urgently need. If you can help breathe new life into the work of St Laurence by offering few pounds, please call 0141 559 5690 or make donation via the website donation home page
