Children and young people in 42 small group homes developed by Hope and Homes for Children Romania received the best gift from Santa Claus: books for their first bookshelf.

Over 400 children in small group homes have received books as gifts with the help of the Deliver Love team

Children and young people in 42 small group homes developed by Hope and Homes for Children Romania received the best gift from Santa Claus: books for their first bookshelf. The books were donated by generous people who responded to the initiative of Cristina Dobrescu, co-founder of the letter writing and delivery project Deliver Love – the Letter Studio.

In October and November, the team behind Deliver Love launched a call to collect children’s books and asked those who wanted to donate to write a personal message on the cover page. Over 1,000 books were collected this way; they were sorted and wrapped by Hope and Homes for Children and Deliver Love volunteers. In early December, the books were sent on their way to children and young people in five counties. Some of these wonderful gifts have already reached the 439 children and young people aged 4 to 25 who live in small group homes in Alba, Bistrița, Mureș, Maramureș and Bucharest. More books are on their way and will reach their destination in the following days, with the help of FAN Courier.

The children and young people will enjoy the books and will be able to put the first books in the bookcase of their small group home built by Hope and Homes for Children.
