Barefoot Love Association - Romania
Give2Give | Twelve years after joining the European Union, Romania is still the second-poorest country in the EU, after Bulgaria.
The Barefoot Love Association, founded by Magda Savuica is quite new. Magda moved from Bucharest, from her well-paid job to take care of the children of Negresti, Vaslui. This town is located in one of the poorest areas of the country. Gardening, helping at the local school, feeding the destitute and helping repair mud streets and houses that often lack sanitation and electricity are some of the tasks to which Savuica has dedicated the organisational skills to that she has developed in the corporate world. Magda adopted two little girls and next to taking care of them she offers warm meals to the kids and their families help them to access the education system, asks for clothes donations and everything that is necessary to help the community to fulfil some of their basics needs.
