PRESS RELEASE

Distribution of food is a feast for both the beneficiaries and for us as an association.
During the Great Lent, we organized a collection of food in three Greek Catholic churches in Oradea (Cathedral „Sfantul Nicolae”, Church „Maica Domnului”, Church „Sfanta Treime” from Oradea). Believers have purchased or surrendered to different foods to donate them to those whose fate has been less favourable.
The food has been collected with the help of volunteers. Every Sunday of the Great Lent, 28 volunteers, aged between 16 and 65, were involved in the collection that we organized.
Those who choose to engage in this collection have done 150 hours of volunteering. If we were to account for the volunteers working hours we arrive at the amount of 244 euro.
At the food collection were gathered basic foods, namely: oil (131 litters), flour (163 kg), sugar (294 kg), rice (106 kg), etc.., with an inventory value of 734 euro. Some believers have chosen to donate the money.
Cash donations were worth 2.065 euro.
From the collected food we provide food packages throughout the year. Of these packages, benefit over 100 families in distress. These families have low incomes, insufficient for even a meal a day. With the money they earn, these people pay their bills or rent. Also, food packages support single people, elderly, who household themselves from a package for months.
This year only 46 families have chosen to pick up food at Easter feasts.
