Moinesti 2016 had a bitter-sweet start when 100+ local kids wanted to take part - but we only had 60 spaces - sad to have to turn some away
Words of encouragement from The Vaccines lead singer Justin Young, who is an Ambassador for Libra. Justin says: "At school we were constantly told how lucky and priviledged we were, but it took me a long time to realise how true that was. "I've been so fortunate travelling the world, seeing new things and meeting new people on a daily basis and it is a genuine belief of mine that the more we see, the more we understand about ourselves and others around us. "... there are people less fortunate than ourselves. What Libra has done in Romania by helping to create a future for local children as bright as your own is amazing ... I want to say to all those that have taken part, are taking part or are considering taking part, well done and good luck. I would have done the same."Oct 7th
