The Social Settlement “Saint Onufrie”

Family-style houses for the Protection of Children Facing Hardship is constructed on a land donated by the Protection of the Holy Virgin Monastery in the immediate vicinity of the Floresti Monastery. This Social Settlement will offer a harmonious family climate, proper care, education and emotional support for children who are temporarily or permanently separated from their parents, by providing residential services of protection, rearing, care adapted to each child’s individual needs and optimum conditions for their physical, intellectual, moral and spiritual development.


The Social Settlement Saint Onuphrius consists of 4 family-style houses, organized in such a way as to shelter a maximum number of 10 to 20 children each, according to current regulations regarding promotion and protection of the rights of children and a multifunctional building. Within this project, the services will be provided by the employees of the association, qualified personnel with empathy and communication abilities, according to legislation in force (psychotherapist, psycho-pedagogue).

The orphanage is now in construction and two building are almost ready to open to receive the children. However for that final step we need $18,000 for the final work on floors, kitchen appliances and doors and the children furniture. We would like to see this work done as soon as possible in the first trimester of 2015 so the children have a home.  Please help us make this dream a reality!
