This is Puiu Dumitru our first social assisted person since 2003.That time they were living in Breaza, across our home together with his wife .
Theirs situation always were special and strange to the eyes of many people. They were living isolated without any contact with people in sever poorness which they also accepted, they refused any kind of help.They were satisfied with their life but in  2010 they sold their home and moved to Filpisu Mic because they found a house with half of the pries they get for their home.They lived there together ,enjoying their privacy ,till the wife got seek and was necessary to intervene in their behalf.
With the help of Diakonia Foundation from Reghin they cleaned , disinfected her from bed bugs and head lies , we could call the ambulance . After one week of hospitalization we take her to Deda elderly home,her return home was not possible .Unfortunately she passed away only after 2 weeks. The city hall arranged the funerals.
To Puiu it was also kind of  relief so he made all kind of plan for the future .We ware helping him with food and other things necessary, the idee to bring him to a nursing center he was definitely refusing. But as the summer came his condition turned from bad to worse,he got blind suddenly .One occasion  we went there we found him in not human condition, hungry and week he could hardly stay on his legs, begging for help .It had to be done something and fast. The ambulance came and he was taken to the hospital, where were made the necessary documents and consultations to can be transferred  later on to the Elderly home in Deda. The  Foundation was taking the responsibility to pay his monthly tax ,medication and further the documentation to get the first disability grade for his blindness.
Since June  2018 he is living over there, he got accommodated quit fast the whole medical team was
taking good care of him . He received meal , a warm bead to sleep, love and care, from the whole team, more than he ever hoped.
In September he had received his  first pension , which was enough to cover all his cost there but this was only for 1 year until May 2019. So it was necessary to find another solution for the future.We made all necessary investigation and documents  again to be moved to a state Eldery home in  Ideci where he can leave .There was told us that he will be accepted only if he can see and being able to arrange himself because by the nursing part they ware fool.
In December we made an appointment by an Ophthalmology  Surgeon and on 21 December was operated ,removed the cataract.Thanks to Stichting Promotie who payed the intervention cost Puiu can see now with one eye, he regain 80% his seeing. Second operation will be after 6 months.He is overenthusiastic with his new condition and grateful for all the support and care.
 Puiu already accepted his fate that he will live all his life blind ,but we proved him that hoping and fighting together,not giving up, we can do great things, this was a team work which changed a person life in good. 
Monday he is transferred  to Ideci elderly home where he was finally accepted with his new condition.
This project broth us lot of satisfaction and happiness, turned to a happy end. I am grateful for everyone's help and support!
Thank you!
Best regards,
Imola and Csabi Fazakas

Letter from Levente reformed priest in Kisfulpos

Dear leaders,members from  Stichting  Promotie and Van den Heerik Foundation!
Every year continually we have several activities in our congregation, at Kisfülpös, beside the sermons. These activities has not just the meaning to be together, to feel the power of community. The main reason of our occasions are to learn more about God’s message. This work it has to start in the family and is needed to continue until the end of our life. We need God’s direction, othervise we miss the aim easily without it. This aim is served by the Bible- classes for children, for youth people, for all of the congregation’s age group.   Currently the Bible-education happens in three children groups, 1 group for youth (15-18 ages), 1 group for adults. In summer-time we had „congregation-piknik”, where  almost the whole congregation was represented –from babies to old persons. In the end of august we had the Bible-week for the little children, and what we learned together we showed for the congregation in our church. For these occasions we got from Imola and Csaba some delicios biscuits, and other sweet surprises for children and youth persons. Also at Christmas-time we could make packages for children and older people above 70 years old. The packages for children also was made from your support.  In the name of our congregation thank you for suporting us for years to make people happier with your presents. They were so happy and thankful!
We express our gratitude with the Aaronic Blessing, from Num. 6,24-26:
„The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.”
pastor Nagy-Vajda Levente

Report of Association,, Voice of Reghin ``

As  appreciation for the gifts you have given us through Ms. Fazakas Imola and Csaba Regina's Voice Association, Petru Maior Technological High School Reghin,  the gifts we have given to 20 families, carefully selected, because there are many families with very large needs in our area.
As co-coordinating teachers of this association, we want to offer  to  the childrens, models of humanity, but we are also impressed by the joy and appreciation we saw  in the eyes of those we wish to redeem. The volunteers selected within this association are students of our high school, young people willing to do good, who, as they have the opportunity, offers their help to the underprivileged.
These families we help have souls full of sincere gratitude and our help with you is a source of survival for them. I have carefully selected families with more children, they are between 5-12 children / family, I have taken pictures of family representatives, and some of the children are immobilized in bed. The needs of these families are real, some have terminal cancer, others are grandparents who are hard to grow orphaned, others have homes almost fallen on them.
We appreciate your goodwill, we are grateful for what you do for us, we want to work together in the future if possible.
We believe that the most valuable thing in life is to reach the heart of those next to us. We want to wish a year blessed by God, full of health!
Regards, Association Voice of  Reghin

``Dear friends
 On the occasion of the holy celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, we received Christmas gifts from the Van den Heerik Organisation trough the intermediary of Mrs. Imola and Csabi Fazakas from Breaza, Mures County.
These Christmas packages were distributed by Mrs. Iancu Margareta from the “Sfanta Elisabeta” Organization  Sebes and the volunteers of the Organization for Children and Adults with Special Needs “Trebuie!” Sebes.
 On this gifts benefited the poor families with many children, the sick and alone eldery people, disabled people, and a group of poor children at risk of social exclusionn attending the School Dropout  Centre at the sports high school from Sebes.
These Christmas presents have enjoyed the souls of the people from defaulted groups, making their holydays more beutiful, because the friends in the Netherlands have not forgotten them neither this year.
On the behalf of all people who received the Christmas packages, and at their request, I wish to thank to all those who have worked hard to accomplish this job.

Report from Toth Attila for the Christmas packages 2018

``Dear Friends 

Greetings to you from Roumania.  First of all I want to wish you a very successful and Happy New Year, I hope you had a great celebration at Christmass.
In this short letter I want to thank you very much for the food packages what we received from you at December. We are so thankful that now since year you are providing this food packages so thatway we can help the poor gipsy and needy family around Christmass. These year we received from you 125 food packages. Most of this packages was gave out in a gipsy village called Apalina where we shared even before. In this gipsy community are living more than 3000 gipsies. A lot of them are in a very difficult situation. At winter time even those whom are working during the summer in construction and agriculture they are home without work so everybody was very happy and thankful to receive the food package from you. 
Next to Apalina we went to Gornesti and Jara and we visited widows and very needy families whom are living in very desperate situation. Most of these widows are living from a very little pension so they have difficulty to pay the electricity bill and the wood for heating. Some of them are living by themselves and nobody are taking care of them, IT was such a joy to see their thankful face as we gave them your foodpackage. Thank you very much for making this peoples time much nicer
God bless you for your generosity
I send you pictures attached
With thanks and restpect
pastor Attila Toth``
