Christmas packages for Sebes Alba

Dear Ms. Imola,

In the name of the roma community from Sebes,  as the secretary of the Saint Elisabeth association of the roma culture from Sebes-Alba , I would like to thank you for the joy that you made us feel by offering us 200 Christmas packages.
Our community has approximately  4000 members ( 530 families) .  In present,10% of the inhabitants traveled abroad to find the possibility to make a better living for themselves, because most of them doesn’t have a job and because of that they can not support their family. Before 1989, 90% of the active roma population from here  had a job at the socks factory , leather factory , at the timber processing plant or at the sanitation service of the town .After the revolution, they were dismissed , they were without a surse of income. This is the reason they left abroad. Some of them returned , others found a home abroad, and others  without any studies, or  craft  can’t find a permanent job they come and go . Unfortunately,because of the poverty  we have a high rate of school abandonment in the case of the students of  roma ethnicity.
To your knowledge , with this Christmas packages you brought joy to to 200 people living in poverty, sick people , children who are left in the care of their relatives because the parents left abroad .
We would like to say thank you to everyone  who made this possible and made the people from Sebes- Alba to feel the joy of Christmass in their home and soul.
God bless you , we wish you health and long life.
Merry Christmass and a Happy New Year,
Margareta Iancu – Sebes -Alba

Center for Inclusive Education School No. 3, SAM Reghin, located in the district Apalina str. 12 from Reghin Castle, was established in 1959 as a necessity on schooling and professionalization of children with special educational needs who had limited chances access to education than other children.It was the first school especially designed for children with mental disabilities professionalization. The School was arranged in an old castle, whose interior was rearranged and resized to ensure the optimal operation of the educational process and recovery.
 Many students of the school come from orphanages or families with mediocre or even poor education. This is because the School is close to the Roma community Apalina. Because of this situation the  school includes students who have special educational needs and complex evaluation services judgment.
The  2002-2003 school year was the experimental time of the Therapeutic activity-rehabilitation for children with Down syndrome and associated disabilities, special class in mainstream education. This experiment led to very good results, so the children's parents agreed and specialized professionals, because the municipality of Reghin had no form of education for these children . In the 2003-2004 school year the school began providing support to hyperactive children included in mainstream education by itinerant teacher

Currently No.3 CSEI SAM Reghin works with a number of 23 classes, total 202 students.

Together with the kids we broth vegetables, medical and incontinence materials to Deda in the Old People home. It feels very pleasant over there ....we were invited for an apple pie and coffee.In these twoo months they plan to enlarge the home capacity with 16 more persons. They have asked for bads and furniture from us.
