Hands of Grace

"The Hands of Grace" Association in Romania (Asociatia Mainile Harului) is a charitable, Christian association working in cooperation with others charities and volunteers to impact the lives of our fellows through the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

About Us

The Hands of Grace Association, located in Romania, is a charitable, Christian association working in cooperation with others charities and volunteers to impact the lives of our fellows through the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and the lives of the people in need through their giving of finance, skills, resources and time.

We are focused on two directions, one regarding the involving of the children and teenagers in cultural and educational activities that facilitate the acquisition of communication skills, the growth of confidence in their own forces and assimilation of the values of Christian moral behavior and the other one, focused on prevention of school abandonment and family, school reintegration of children, young people and people in need and supporting them to occupy a place of work and their harmonious integration into nowadays society.

Our Mission

Our mission is to offer a helping hand according to the Scriptures. In Philippians 2:13 it is written that it is God who works in us, the believers, to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose.
We belong to Jesus and we believe it is Him who wants to live in us and glorify His name in our lives.

The purpose of our social projects is to show God’s love and grace to special people in need, only here it is from you - an individual, and not an organization!
Do not forget that it is more blessed to give than to receive! (Acts 20:35)

Our Projects

"The New Horizons" Catina project
There are a lot of families in the rural area in Romania affected by severe financial hardship and with extra difficulties such as long-term or terminal illness, violence or abuse, depression, disability or overcrowded and inadequate housing. These are families that face daily hardship made worse by all these and very often they get into the depths of despair and often they neglect their children or even abuse or abandon them.
If you adopt a Romanian family here , it may mean the difference in life and death.
Many people will starve to death, or freeze to death this winter due to lack of food or fuel and a few euro a month can make all the difference in the world to them!

You will be given details about the family you adopt, and if you would like to communicate with them, we would do so as much as possible through our translator. Anything is welcome from food, clothes, furniture to money the people need to buy their daily bread. Among our projects objectives are:
1. Focusing on poor children and their families.
2. Supporting parents to send their children to the government school,
3. Informing parents about the value of education,
4. Supporting children with extra help in the afternoon, and providing provision of school materials
5. Organizing meetings, seminars and workshops concerning economic, social and spiritual problems in Romania.
6. Performing indoor and outdoor games and sport activity for children and young people who do not have the possibilities at home and who live in poor communities at the weekends
7. Building a wooden mobile centre in Catina and every area needed where children can have a refuge where they can be really helped

Why paper crafting?
The preschool age is a wonderful learning age for children. This is the time when they have a lot of curiosity and want to explore and know new things. Making crafts is a very creative way for children to spend leisure hours at home
In our Paper Crafting Club Turda Project ,children from all ages learn how to interact with one another while they are involved in making crafts and more than this how to thank God who gave them this great gift –to be creative and useful for those around them. These craft projects can also help bring people together - connecting lives, strengthening family ties and forging friendships.

Children who come to our club enjoy spending time together working , praying and having fun. The activities are usually developed in the own apartment of the our project coordinator Stefan Tosa and sometimes are invited to public schools and kindergartens . All the children need is more crafting material , paper, colors , glue and specific tools. It is great when God shows His abundant love and we receive all these from those who love us.
