Scholarship to Help Romanian Babies in Winter Months

The needs of children in Barlad’s Children’s Hospital are significant. Our volunteers care for abandoned special needs babies and toddlers all year around, helping to improve their start in life. Volunteer engagement drops during the winter months, but the children’s needs remain stable. Much growing and learning takes place in January and February! To sustain a minimum number of volunteers each month, the Romania Winter Scholarship provides two winners $1, 000 each and four additional winners $500 each for service during these two months. To be eligible for the $1, 000 scholarship, you must be one of the first two adult applicants for either the January 21 – February 4 or February 18 – March 4 programs.

A little background on this scholarship:

This extraordinary opportunity is generously provided by a former Romania volunteer and her mother who desire to ensure the children we serve in Barlad receive consistent care throughout the year. Learn more about our Romania service program here! Even if you can’t serve in January or February, please consider joining a team later in the year. And, if you’d prefer to donate rather than volunteer, your contribution to the Romania Winter Scholarship Fund will enable future volunteers to serve next winter!
