ADRA Romania has inaugurated the new Center for Victims of Family Violence

ADRA Romania Director, Mr. Cornel Roman, the President of National Agency for Family Protection, Mrs. Mihaela Mostavi and the together with Mr. Nelu Burcea , Director of Communication of Romania Adventist Church of Seventh Day have officially inaugurated, along with guests present at the event, the new Emergency Reception Center for Victims of Family Violence from Ilfov County. The Accreditation Commission of Providers of Social Services of Bucharest City has accredited the new social service in 12 March 2009 and it represents a new and essential component of portfolio of social projects at ADRA Romania.

The Centre “ADRA House” (Casa ADRA) is located in Ilfov County and it has 10 rooms with a capacity of hosting 24 people, a reception office, and a counselling office for beneficiaries. The Centre offers social and legal services to residents from any county as well as psychological counselling.

“According to statistics the family violence is increasingly frequent. This shelter is a first step in helping victims of such events. The affected people will receive hosting and complex recovery services for 60 days. Also, we’ll offer them a real chance for a new start in life: we’ll try getting a job, psychological and legal support and a frame of exceptional natural for these women and for their children who are very often collateral victims” has declared Mr. Roman Cornel, Director of ADRA Romania.

Despite legislation and punctual campaigns, the phenomenon of domestic violence is increasingly visible. According to statistics, last year Romania recorded over 11.500 cases of domestic violence, a woman being killed by husband, brother, or father in every week. Thus in Romania 150 people died after aggression perpetrated in family just in 2008. Although statistics worries, social experts warn that this is just the iceberg peak, the reality being more tragic and many cases are not denounced because of cultural reasons or fear.

On the occasion of inauguration and signing the protocol of collaboration, The President of National Agency for Family Protection, Mrs. Mostavi congratulated ADRA Romania “for the quality and comfort of shelter and also for supporting the full costs of project. In addition, I appreciate the large number of beneficiaries you have had in mind when you think to realize this shelter because Bucharest is lacking in this area”.

ADRA Romania conducted humanitarian activities in the whole country, being a social services provider by accreditation for “The Centre for Counseling and Support for Victims of Natural Disasters” and for “The Centre for Information and Counseling for People in Need”. Since November 2003, ADRA Romania is member of “Federation of non-governmental organizations for child protection” from our country.
