Boots for Children in Need from Mures County
Winters in Romania are cold and for the children that come from poor conditions the situation is even worse. For the past year we received a winter boots donation from Metro Ministries Romania. We were so blessed this year that we were able to give to the children from the gypsy community in Ogra who are in kindergarten and school, but this year we were also able to give to the children from the surrounding villages, Vaideu and Lăscud.
We traveled to the villages together with our team of volunteers. The kids were waiting for us in their classes, they were so excited to receive our visit and even more excited to receive the boots; some of them wanted to keep the boots on because their shoes were in very poor condition.
We used this moment to remind the children of the importance of staying in school, and we reinforced this by telling them that this is also a reward for attending school on a daily basis.
