Austrian children help Romanian kids

romaniantimes.at

A charity project run by the middle school in Hippach has been recognised with an award for its social work by officials in Tyrol. The pupils at the school have now been collecting money for six years as part of the project "building bridges" with the lion's share of the money going to help the children of poor families in Romania. Project coordinator Rita Lechner-Dreier said: "The project just took on a life of its own right after it was started. In addition once you had seen after the first year the positive effects of what we have done it was hard not to carry on. In 2007 we went to Satu Mare to see what was being done with the money, and we saw that while a lot of good been done there was much more that still needed to be done and realised we couldn't just stop." This year the kids at the school are in the process of painting up 300 cardboard boxes which will be filled with gifts mainly foodstuffs and sent to the region before Christmas. Thanks to a partnership with Caritas Tirol and the Caritas in Satu Mare is 100 per cent guaranteed that all of the packages end up with those that need them.
