Children of the Promise Foundation

Who we are?...   

- a Christian charity in Oradea, Romania, founded by Samuil Mitra in 1998. It was founded as a response to the drama of street children living without hope. Some came from orphanages, others have been deserted by their parents, and many were begging at church doors on Sundays. 
      At the beginning, this outreach was a Christian reflex of immediate intervention to help our desperate neighbours, victims of abuses and poverty. Eventually, Children of the Promise was created; an accredited charity and provider of social services. Currently, we have two Day Centres and one Residential Centre.

General objective


Initially, this ministry was financially supported by a private donor and a Christian institution from abroad. During the last years, we have gained some grants from local authorities for specific projects. Also, individuals and Romanian companies have provided material and financial support, as well as direct involvement as volunteers.
