Austrian volunteers renovate Caritas headquarters
After a two-year break caused by the pandemic, this week, between 26 and 30 June, the volunteer program continued, within which the students of the HTL Mödling professional school in Lower Austria voluntarily renovate the first floor rooms of the St. Joseph Social Center, the headquarters of Caritas Catolica in Oradea.
We bring bread to Ukrainian tables
Already in the early stages of the Ukrainian refugee crisis, we learned from field-reports that in Transcarpathia and other regions of Ukraine where there were many refugees, there was a severe shortage of bread. Mills had nothing to grind, and the bakeries which were still functioning had to work with very little flour. Therefore, in the months since February, we have tried to transfer a large part of our existing flour reserves to crisis-stricken regions via several routes – including towards aid organizations in Nevetlenfalu, Munkachevo and Vynohradiv, from where donations have been re-distributed to many other areas of Ukraine.
Theatre performance in the elderly home
We would like to thank the Lilliput Company of the Szigligeti Theatre for bringing a little live literature and music to the inhabitants of the St. Elizabeth's Elderly Home. The play The hammer of the village, directed by Rita Bartal Kiss, was an unforgettable experience for the elderly.
We donated cat-food to the local shelter
Although Caritas Catolica's mission is primarily to help people in need and human communities, we feel blessed that sometimes we can also help out our four-legged companions. Thanks to the cooperation with the local Food Bank, yesterday we had the opportunity to donate 180 kilograms of dry cat food to the Friends of Cats Oradea Association.
