NLFR has been running for 21 years. Our aim is to support families of all ages who live in poverty. Each year we send a full truck of aid to Simeria and Aiud, in the Transylvanian area of Romania. We also support 20 families in Aiud and 14 families in Simeria with a basic supply of groceries each month and we take donated medical supplies to the hospital in Aiud.
The families in each of these areas have a variety of needs and are from all ages. Many live in extremely poor conditions with little hope of bettering themselves, while others struggle below the poverty line on benefits which are inadequate to support them in their general living standards, health and social needs.
