The “Filantropia Oradea” Association is a non-governmental organization that operates in social services, under the auspices of the Diocese of Oradea. It operates since 2009, with the blessing of His Grace Sofronie, Bishop of Oradea. During 2011, the activity of the organization expanded by opening 6 branches in Bihor county.
The mission of the Association is to promote community spirit, to inculcate an organizational culture among clergy starting from Orthodox values embodied in ecumenical oblation and the entire work of its servants, building a unified and transparent system of social services. One of the first challenges of this organization was to create tools of community facilitation, information, counseling, intervention and support for the harmonious development of communities within the diocese.
The Association initiated dialogue with institutions and partners to develop sustainable social services, but also to create appropriate portfolio of projects to be recommended as a public benefit organization.
With the support of the Diocese of Oradea, in recent years the organization has initiated a series of actions that will assist those suffering from multiple sclerosis.
