We help children, young people and families primarily living in Dorohoi, Botosani, in northeast Romania

Based in the UK, Light for Children aims to advance the Christian faith through the relief of need, hardship or sickness amongst children, young people and families, resident in, or citizens of Romania, by offering social, educational and spiritual support according to Christian principles.

How we help people in Dorohoi

We offer material and practical support to the following groups of people:

  • institutionalised children and young people, particularly those living in the state-run apartment complexes in Dorohoi, where there is an ongoing need to finance medication, dental work, ophthalmic care, educational resources and opportunities, summer camps, clothing, footwear, toiletries etc.

  • young people leaving the state care system, needing help to find work and accommodation as well as practical support in their daily lives;

  • children and young people with life-threatening illnesses;

  • young families who are trying to raise their children with very low incomes.

The town of Dorohoi is located in the county of Botosani in northeast Romania, 30km from the border with Ukraine.

Medication and medical support

We pay for medication, medical tests, dental work, optician appointments and glasses for children and young people living in state care in Dorohoi.


We pay for books and extra tuition for school children, sponsor university students and support extra curriculum and other educational projects.

Sport and music

We encourage children to be active and support individuals who commit to a particular sport. We provide music lessons and have formed a small children’s orchestra.

Young people living independently

We offer practical, emotional and financial support to young people who have grown up in the state care system but are now living independently.

Summer holiday activities

We have arranged camps, holiday clubs and daytrips during summer holidays. We also support children who are able to take part in similar events organised by other charities.

Special projects

We arrange events and provide treats to celebrate Christmas and Easter. We also fund special projects throughout the year for children, young people and/or local families.
