We have a problem…
60.000 children are abandoned in Romania. Most of them are placed in institutions; 93% can never be adopted. Moreover, adopting a child in Romania is a very difficult process and not many are there to help. In most cases, those who succeed are not properly trained in healing children that have experienced loss, neglect and abuse.
Therefore, “Tzuby’s Kids” Association is committed to work on real solutions:
1) integrating children in foster families to shorten time spent in institutions as much as possible;
2) training staff working with abandoned children as well as foster and adoptive parents in helping children with a history of trauma;
3) supporting long-term development of institutionalized children addressed through education, art and play therapy;
4) supporting legislation changes in affiliation with other similar organizations.
