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

Now we look back at the Comanesti 2016 project. Comanesti was one of Libraâ€™s first projects and has always been very well received by the beneficiaries and key supporters of Libra in-country. The numbers of children who would like to have attended each day from all sectors of the Comanesti community was high - and that in itself is a witness to the demand and need for an integration project in a municipality that is highly segregated and, in some instances, prejudiced and misinformed. Alex Harden, Tim Gully and Karen Brooks led a six undergraduate student team from the University of Chichester on this project - which ended with a wonderful final day parade.Aug 11th
This year the Onesti Homes project (which has evolved from Libra's original project in The Alexandra Centre institution) focussed on increasing the therapy provision for youngsters. This is one of Libra's most demanding projects. The severe needs of the beneficiaries and the very limited facilities presently available creates a weighty challenge for volunteers and places considerable demands on their expertise, ingenuity and patience. Huge thanks therefore to the student volunteers and project leaders Toni Shave and Gemma Kiddle. Also to Sarah Burgess, an experienced occupational health therapist who spent the first week there, and Activity Leaders Ellie Abraham and Ellie Bentley. We were also delighted that Stuart Labran from JAGS (James Allen Girls School) was also able to join us for a week.
