The Story

Caminul Felix in Oradea, Romania has two villages with 16 families, each providing a mother and father for over 200 orphaned and vulnerable children. Parents, children, and young adults in Caminul Felix are engaged in various activities and projects such as: tailoring workshops, carpentry workshops, farming, car workshops, as well as other means of support. All these programs are designed to help children develop, as well as teach them practical life skills. Caminul Felix has also recently launched “The Assisted Home” where young adults from CF who have disabilities that prevent them from living on their own will be provided a forever home with the family support they need at Caminul Village 2.
Assist International is honored to have partnered with Caminul Felix for nearly 30 years, giving children and families hope & a bright future.
It has been called the model for the entire country by the child protective services of Romania. Caminul Felix has a waiting list, as it continues to rescue orphaned and vulnerable children in Romania.
