The newest member of the Filantropia Federation, the ”Bucuria Ajutorului” Foundation (BAF) was founded in 2010, under the patronage of the Archdiocese of Bucharest, at His Beatitude Daniel’s, Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church initiative and it has been an accredited social services provider since July 2011.
The organization’s vision is a world in which people will realize that helping is not only giving, but it also means the joy shared between the one who gives and the one who receives.
The organization provides services to the families with children in need, to the children and young adults coming from families with a high risk of social marginalization, who need support for school/professional orientation, but also children who are in the protection system (residential centers‚ professional maternal assistants etc), who are in various forms of school or professional training, who have a low reintegration potential in the biological family and in their origin community.
