A safe haven for (abandoned/underprivileged) children
The Obed Foundation was founded in the spring of 2014 with the aim of realizing a family home in Ghimbav, Romania. Ultimately, the wish is to receive approximately 6-8 abandoned children in a family situation here. At the moment, three children are permanently admitted to this family home, and one child is also cared for during the weekends.
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.
By purchasing the current building with land, the foundation faces the next financial challenge. That is the renovation of the building and expansion through new construction. In the current situation it is not possible to achieve the target, because the current building offers insufficient space for this.
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.
