Sponsoring and tickets options

Saint Paraskeva Orthodox Charity is a faith based non-profit organization that provides developmental and spiritual services through a grass roots approach focusing primarily on orphaned and disabled children in Romania’s most under served communities, providing support not just on a one-time basis but through long-term relationships. Our organization operates 100% on volunteer-based work, ensuring that the entire amount of your donations is allocated to our programs that make a difference in the lives of those individuals most in need of help. 

With the generous support and donations of our sponsors we are able to be involved in a few humanitarian projects in Romania, a complete list of our supported project can be found here.  If you will like to help us please donate to our cause.

Saint ParaskevaSaint Paraskeva was born at the beginning of the 11th century A.D. into a wealthy, noble, and pious Christian family in the town of Epivat (now in Turkey) on the shores of the Marmara Sea. At the age of ten, while attending the liturgy in the “Church of the Holy Theotokos”, she heard the words, “Whosoever will come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross, and follow me.” The words of the Lord had a profound effect on the young girl, and they became the subject of her meditations.
