The foundation in Romania "Fundatia Est Europa" was founded in 1999, at the initiative of the president of the foundation, Mrs. Olga van Lavieren.
Olga van Lavieren has been involved with the "Stichting OostEuropa Zending" (Netherlands) since 1987. In Romania she had started the activity in June 1991 and in Oradea since 1996. From the Netherlands she supervises the activities held in the Social Centre Casa Lumina in Oradea.


Social Centre Casa Lumina - Oradea, Romania

The purpose of the Social centre.
At the beginning, the foundation started its activities by helping the young people from the street or from the orphanages to integrate into and to be part of the society. These young people have a very traumatic background and because of their character and of their distorted attitudes, this integration took a lot of patience and time.
Meanwhile, the activities of the foundation have been diversified and there are orientated toward children with special social needs.
The Social Centre carries out three main programs: Kindergarten, After School Program and a program for Mother and Child.
Besides these main programs, the foundation carries out other activities too, such as: humanitarian aid, church activities, visits to the local Prison in Oradea.

Our desire is to use the center to spread the light of God into this dark world and to testify about the life-transforming power of Jesus Christ. If you want to join us in prayers, we can inform you about our needs, by sending you our newsletter (see contact)
