The Romanian Aid Foundation – May 2022

RoAF is essentially a faith-based organisation that relies on prayer. Below and overleaf we offer some prayer pointers, but please feel free to add your own items as they come to mind. Prayer is our connection with God’s ultimate power source and, without prayer support, this work would achieve nothing of lasting value.

Once again, stocks are building up in our warehouses. Plans were in hand for another lorry at the end of April but the late Orthodox Easter and the bank holiday weekend in the UK have meant that lorries may be not be readily available then and this load will be delayed. Nevertheless we anticipate being able to send yet another lorry in early June.

Again we want thank all those who have given so generously, whether it be goods, time, finances or prayer; you are all partners in our efforts to help needy Romanian households and now also our guests from Ukraine.

Give thanks …

1. For those who continue to support the activities of RoAF and AN.

Please pray …

1. For the arrangements for the next lorries.
2. For the safety of our warehouses and the volunteers who work in them.

Asociaţia Neemia – May 2022

This month we received some extra food and household items from a charity in the east of Romania. It was a long drive in our van to go and collect them but it was worthwhile. The goods included a large quantity of margarine which we can donate in place of the sunflower oil now that last year’s crop is almost exhausted.

A letter from Ukraine Dorohoi:
“ I’m Natalia, my husband is Sasha and our daughter is Sveta, we come from Ucraina from the town Zaporojie and arrived here on 30th of March.

To begin with we have not planned to evacuate our home, but when we heard about how the Russian criminals and Russian rapists commit atrocities in Ukraine and they are getting closer to Zaporojie area and so many people died in Mariupol in basements without water and food.

Then we heard that will be organised an evacuation train from Zaporojie for people with handicap and disabilities. Our daughter has Down Syndrom so we were able to leave Zaporojie. Some volunteers looked after us and guided us to be able to get to Romania, in Dorohoi.

Our family are staying in Casa Neemia, a beautiful house with many rooms where young boys and girls orphans are staying as well. We feel very welcome here, Beni and Angelica are looking after all our needs and all the others are caring, kind and very friendly with us. We are staying now in a large, beautiful and very comfortable room. We are well fed with delicious food every day.

We thank you and wish all God’s blessing upon you! ”

Give thanks …

1. For a new charity contact and the generous donation of food and household necessities.
2. That the work at Casa Neemia has progressed well, the rooms are now ready to be used by our guests from Ukraine.

Please pray …

1. For Sasha, Natalia and Sveta, to find peace and hope.
2. For Beni, Angelica, Laurentiu and the AN team providing hospitality.
3. For needy families worried by the increased costs of food and energy.
