A letter from Simona Stewart
Founder and Director
House of Angels, Romania
September 5, 2010
Dearest friends of the House of Angels,
It has been over 8 years for some of us, and a bit less for others, since we have met due to the same interest : the desire of helping less fortunate children, orphan children and children who needed help. We all have chosen to volunteer in our way for this house of angels.
I am not going to mention any names but I can guarantee that each and every one of you is deeply imprinted in the walls, and the minds and the souls of the children and especially the nurses of the House of Angels.
I’m proud to say that WE, TOGETHER , managed to bring happiness and give a happy childhood time to over 300 children during all these years and we all have memories that nobody can take away from us.
Here I am today, writing you this letter and telling you that House of Angels came to the point where it might lose the building and not being able to care for any children due to the dramatic drop of donations.
I am finding myself in the situation where I come to you, dearest friends of House of Angels, and I’m desperately asking for your help, like I did 8 years ago.
If we are still in your hearts, now, more than ever, we need your help.
We need monthly pledges for any amount of money you would like. Just send us back an email with your future commitment.
The amounts can start with even 1 (one) USD per month because the survival of the House of Angels depends on any dollar.
You don’t need to send any money right now but we need your commitment in writing by replying to this email and telling us the amount you are willing to donate every month starting with the month of October, 2010.
At the end of September, I will let you know if HoA will continue helping the children and how you can donate the money.
Your donations will continue the PHYSICAL THERAPY PROGRAM where 26 very poor children (8 orphans) with physical disabilities (not being able to walk) and no education at all receive individual specialized therapy, followed by occupational/educational therapy and nutritional lunch.... AND/OR ... the AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM where 22 children coming from really poor families (8 orphans) receive lunches, naps, help for homework, supervision while playing inside or outside, and afternoon snacks before they go home... AND... especially will continue our (the children’s) DREAM OF SEEING YOU AGAIN ONE DAY. !
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and please always remember that somewhere, in this world, there are children who were blessed to know how it is to live a normal childhood with food, toys, education and affection because of YOU !
May God bless you and your families !
