FFR’s International Language Lesson

English is a universal language; but after years of working with volunteers, we’ve learned that some words are not as universal. One example we run into in the hospital is that in America babies wear diapers, but in England babies wear nappies. Steffi, our German, decided to quiz Australia, England, and America to help us all learn a few more words and become more universal in the English language!

Clownin’ Around in the Hospital

In addition to providing love to the babies in the hospital, our volunteers also provide much needed laughter and smiles! How can you help by giggle when you see these two clowns. Thanks girls for providing entertainment to the kids in the hospital, the staff, and to all of us! You are both amazing!

Beautiful Tunes for FFR’s Cause

Happy Thanksgiving from Romania!

FFR is thankful for:
  • Our long term team
  • International volunteers
  • Financial donors
  • Prayer warriors
This year we are thankful to God for the many blessings that have been provided from around the world to help the Romanian children feel loved, wanted, and supported. When Sarah and Steffi walked into the Children’s Hospital in 2005 they provided one bag of diapers each day. Eleven years later we are now providing over 56,000 diapers on a yearly basis. God has blessed FFR with growth and finances to be able to grow not only with diaper support but with educational programs in the Roma villages. We are thankful! 

Sweden Paints FFR!

After a morning of school, the children enter our building for the After School Program. Little hands touch the walls as the kids climb the stairs. This year, however, when they turn the corner, the children will walk into storybook pictures… farm scenes, the solar system, and a city skyline!

Seven Countries in One Team!

Since there have been many recent Facebook posts introducing new and returning volunteers, we thought it would be helpful to have everyone who is volunteering long term in Romania in one video. What is your name, where you are from, your position within FFR, and favorite color is shared by each individual. Since Sarah Peters is with her family in England at the moment, we had a substitute for her and assumed her favorite color was purple. Sarah Vienna, president of FFR, is the narrator and director of the film and her favorite color is blue.

We love having new people join our team so come visit us!

We need gloves, we need you!

Sterile gloves protect our health. If you are interested in helping, please contact mail@firmfoundationsromania.com.

Scrub Tops and Pizza in Codlea

Two very exciting things happened at the orphanage in May and June! In May, we organized a scrub drive in order to give each nurse a new cute scrub top. The scrubs they normally wear are very plain and some nurses do not have any at all.
