Romania Bakery Update

This winter has been particularly harsh in Romania.  However, with the change of the season and warmer weather just ahead, plans are underway to make significant progress in preparing the building for the bakery industry at our children’s village.

The work needed to remodel the building is broken into phases:

  1. Phase 1 – Install the electrical, plumbing and heating systems.  Install the ceiling.
  2. Phase 2 – Plaster the walls and pour the sub floor
  3. Phase 3 – Install the septic system, finish the roof, install doors and paint
  4. Phase 4 – Install the finished flooring

Three mission groups are planning to travel to Romania this summer, bringing much  needed funds and volunteer labor.  ICC Iceland has organized a trip for late May.  In July, two groups from the Netherlands will volunteer at the project.  One of the groups is being organized by the Netherlands ADRA office and the other by ICC Netherlands. 

At this time, there should be sufficient funds raised or already in hand to complete phases 1 and 2 along with part of phase 3.  Additional funds and volunteer labor are needed to complete the remodeling.  In addition, funds or gifts-in-kind donations are needed for the industrial equipment needed to operate this industry.

Once operational, it is expected that the bakery will generate profits that will go toward the operating needs of the children’s village.  It will also provide a resource for the older children to learn valuable work skills.

If you’d like to get involved with this project through donating funds or technical skill, please contact ICC at 800-422-7729.
