"We may not be able to explain entirely why we suffer, but we can help alleviate it by responding to the difficulties of our times."
- Bart Ehrman

About

The Cold War in eastern Europe and Russia is long over yet the after effects can be seen and severe poverty and injustice remain. Decades of inhumane ideologies have left behind a tragic legacy which can be seen in ethnic unrest, bankrupt economies, severe poverty and unemployment. The victims are many who have little no voice, from orphans in Romania to malnourished children in Bulgaria; we can help them by being their voice.

Throughout eastern Europe and Russia there is no middle-class; this results in most living in abject poverty. By (resourcing) working closely with compassionate vetted Nationals in their countries EuroAid can ensure sound accountability. Funds are used efficiently, cultures are understood and lives changed.

Imagine not being able to heat your home without causing harm to your children; or not being able to bathe, brush your teeth or wear clean clothing. Imagine having only one cold water faucet for an entire village. This is reality for many of the poor and dislodged in eastern Europe and Russia.

Who we are

EuroAid is a Christian relief development and advocacy organization dedicated to work with children, families and communities in the eastern countries of Europe and Russia at a grass roots level by providing for their physical, practical and emotional needs.

What we do

We are solely committed to help overcome abject poverty and acute hunger, provide clean water and basic human relief, restore dignity and assist in education regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.

Places we're making a difference

Europe

Romania Projects

Tulca

Tulca

Community Development

Why?

Currently water, mud, straw and feces make up the building materials for housing. These materials deteriorate very quickly and are put into place prior to the min. 6 month drying period needed.

Action:

EuroAid is working with its strategic partners in Tulca to develop brick making and basic housing for the poor. Goal is to develop community living that is sustainable and above present living conditions.

Needs:

An acre of land, staffing and training of locals to build micro economy for community, well digging, building of homes.

Medgidia

Medgidia

Health Clinic

Why?

Alibaba is the poorest area of Medgidia and very basic health care is non-existent for this community. Basic care will help prevent systemic illness from arising and causing even greater issues.

Action:

EuroAid is working with its partners in Medgidia to finish development on a small health facility to attend to the general medical, dental and optometry needs of this community.

Needs:

Finish construction and development of facility, volunteer medical and support staff, part time staff, medical supplies.

Oradea

Oradea

Hospice

Why?

Visits are presently done in a 45 mile radius to serve the sick and terminally ill and so very few can be done daily and the numbers are staggering. To extend a hand of dignity to those who cannot help themselves.

Action:

EuroAid is working with its partners in Oradea to build that area’s first residential hospice which will be far more efficient and effective and provide basic needs for its patients for generations to come.

Needs:

Finish construction of the hospice (land was generously donated). Maintaining a steady staffing presence to attend to the sick and terminally ill.
