Caritas Eparhial Oradea


Str. Mihai Pavel nr. 3
410210 - Oradea, BH








Since the beginning of its activity, Caritas Eparhial Oradea Association promoted, besides other Christian principles, the principle of voluntarism. This was done by involving people in organisation’s activities on a voluntary basis, without being financially rewarded for it. These people are called volunteers and they offer part of their time and energy for the benefit of others.

The volunteers of Caritas Eparhial Oradea Association are different one from the other, from all points of view: age, occupation, educational background, religious denomination etc. Nevertheless, they have always served for the good of the beneficiaries, taking part in the majority of the activities: foods collection, foods distribution, clothes and warm meal, home sanitary cleaning, manufacture seasons’ greetings cards, tailor activities, clowns’ performances etc.


For us, our volunteers’ work is very precious and irreplaceable. At the end of each year, when we draw the bottom line and review our work along the year, we realise that many of the organisation’s achievments were possible due to the involvement of the volunteers. We are thankful to all those who’ve chosen to offer a few hours from their precious time for helping us in finding solutions to the problems of the community. Even we celebrate them every year, in January, on „Caritas Volunteer’s Day” when we take the opportunity to publicly thank all the volunteers, we know this is not sufficient. In the same time, we are aware that, no matter how much we would struggle, the reward for those who dedicate their work for others is not totally here.


Number of active volunteers:

- 2011 – registered volunteers 169, active volunteers 95

- 2012 - registered volunteers 231, active volunteers 198

- 2013 - registered volunteers 365, active volunteers 141

- 2014 - registered volunteers 435, active volunteers 169

- 2014 - registered volunteers 250, active volunteers 165

Dear volunteers, we thank all of you who’ve chosen to stay with us in an exceptional year. 2008 was a year of development for our organisation.

No matter the programme or activity you’ve participated in, your effort is appreciated and we are greatful for you’ve joined Caritas team in its struggle for solving community’s problems.
