Easter Visit for Seniors

Baia Mare, Romania

Family volunteers, along with their children, cheer up the elderly at Easter, Romania

A highlight of the year was the Easter concert we organized for the elderly. The director of the old folks home opened the concert with a little introduction, and expressed her appreciation for our work and collaboration with her institution. The show lasted for over an hour and included songs, dances, and some Easter inspirational material read by some of the children of members of the Family International, along with an adult.

A feature of the concert was the participation of two violinists and a pianist––local musicians—who generously agreed to participate in our program and played beautiful classical music. The local mayor also participated and gave a speech.

Several newspaper articles were published, and a TV show featured interviews with residents and one of our Family International volunteers.
