Casa Bridget is a home in the village of Nicoresti, in the Galati County, South East Romania for 16 special needs young adults formally resident in appalling state orphanages. Our residents are thriving under the love and care shown to them by our qualified social assistants and also benefit from our in-house physiotherapist and nurse. Casa Bridget also has a sensory room and a big play room which helps to keep the residents occupied during the long winters. Our aim is to help our residents be as independent as possible and we also like to keep them stimulated through regular trips out, music sessions, art and craft and a number of different daily activities.
After years of handing out donations in the village we realized that the best way to try and break the poverty cycle is through education. Therefore, in 2007 we, together with our Italian friends “Noiperloro” built a Day Centre on the grounds of Casa Bridget. This project provides schooling, hot meals, washing facilities and clothing to 40 children per day. Many of these children are neglected, they live in poor conditions with little food, very poor hygienic conditions and no education and are at risk of being abandoned. We offer them the possibility of a better future, complete with an education that touches all aspects of life, looking from hygiene and nutritional aspects to extra schooling. We also have a psychologist who supports the children through the different problems that their home life inevitably brings. To date the centre has proved to be a tremendous success and great progress has been seen in each child.
