A safe haven for (abandoned/underprivileged) children
Stichting Obed is opgericht in het voorjaar van 2014 met als doel een gezinshuis te realiseren in Ghimbav, Roemenië. Uiteindelijk is de wens hier circa 6-8 verlaten kinderen op te vangen in een gezinssituatie. Op dit moment zijn drie kinderen permanent opgenomen in dit gezinshuis, daarnaast wordt een kind gedurende de weekenden opgevangen.
By means of our family home, and our caring volunteers, we hope to reach the local community to follow and provide a (temporary) home for abandoned children in their own families. This will ultimately provide more children to grow up in a loving family.
By supporting existing local projects, The Obed Foundation contributes to improving the wellbeing and prospects for approximately 125 children.
One example of a local project we support is to provide school bags to children in the nearby village. These children simply have no financial option to obtain a basic product to support their education.
What we do
The name Obed is a Biblical name and means "servant". The foundation aims to provide a serving role by financially supporting Danny and Rianne, who lead the family home. The OBED Foundation therefore focusses mainly on fundraising.
The family house has been named Casa Nadina. Casa means house, Nadina means hope. The name also embraces the objective of the Obed Foundation to provide a hopeful future for children in a safe home.
Join inLET’S BUILD SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL Together
In January 2019, the foundation has started the recruitment of funds for the purchase and renovation of the property.
Your contribution is essential for these children to give shelter, care and special medical facilities so that they can grow up in a normal way. The foster children will be additionally supported to live independently.
