Kindness heals. No matter what. Get involved!

No matter what, we are here to support the children and the young people from the poorest areas in the country. 310 children are counting on us to get through the pandemic.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have offered:


hot meals for the children


recovery therapy sessions


school recovery hours

Heart of a Child Foundation helps children and young people from the poorest area in the country, south-east Romania (Galati, Braila, Vrance and Vaslui). For 25 years, we have been their support in life: to continue their education, to have access at medical care, to feel loved and cared fir within their family. Just like you, we believe in kindness. Kindness heals, no matter what.

We live in confusing times, over-crowded by ideas and noise. In the face of uncertainty, insecurity, fear, isolation, pain, we choose to fight. Our weapons are hope, trust in people, kindness, and the-never-ending desire to help those in need.

Here at the foundation, we believe in kindness, kindness that heals, no matter what. We let ourselves guided by the stories of the children and young people we support, and we make a purpose out of helping them raise their voices. They are the ones for whom we are here every day.

“When I first came here, I remember being ashamed. I was shy, I was afraid. But then I was over it, and I met Alex and Andra and I played with them. Now, after such a long time at the Foundation, I feel really good, I don't know, it is like I was born here.

"I want my new colleague to be quieter and the pandemic to disappear. My new colleague is a bit naughty. Let more new children come to the foundation. Now I'm one of the oldest here. I know what it was like when I first came here, and now, when new children come, I can help them get to know us faster ."

“We are with Heart of a Child Foundation from 2 years and a half. When we first came here, A. wasn’t speaking to anyone, barely with those that she knew. Now she speaks with everybody. I., our youngest girl suffers autism. She was present only in her own world. Now she is more vigilant, more curious to discover new things.”

“I cannot say I have always known what to do with my life. However, over the years, noticing my attraction to being around little souls, I’ve realized that what I really want to do is teach them, being a part of those who raise future generations.”

V. is a very straightforward child. She offers you answers that almost leave you speechless. “I love the smell of cookies. I forgot their name though. Aah, Amandine. I eat so many sweets that I have no teeth left. I also love the smell of tulips, they are so fresh, they remind me of spring.”

“Through implemented projects with Heart of a Child Foundation, we managed to put a smile on disadvantaged families from Galati County faces.

Since the begging our partnership wanted to offer a chance to a better life for those in need and to bring positive impact in the local community. Children need to grow in a healthy family environment, in which to feel safe, understood, guided, and supported. Heart of a Child Foundation showed us that we share the same values and that we both believe in responsibility, perseverance, and dedication as the only way to help building a healthy society. We wish that our partnership to be a long lasting one. We want to sustainably help at growing the community we are part of, and we want to support the solidarity effort that the foundation is doing.”
