Project

Valea Plopului supports 150 Romanian orphan children living in the countryside. The children go to school in the neighboring village as well as the high school in Valenii de Munte city (15 km away). These children deserve a fighting chance at life and the project is geared towards providing these orphan children with a better education.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 30, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
