A statement from CitD in these hard times
Dear Friends and supporters
We do hope this letter finds you and your families well.
Hope you are taking the precautions that the government advise against this terrible COVID-19 pandemic.
We are now living unprecedented times where nobody has all the answers and where the world has been shaken, medically financially corporately and personally.
We are all being affected in some way.
We at Cry in the Dark and Asociatia Lumina are trying our very best to try and keep our projects open especially as we have to deal with some very sick children and young adults who at this time are much more vulnerable than usual.
Our staff at Casa Lumina and at Hospice Lumina are doing the best they can with the resources they have but things are very difficult.
In Romania the County council have halved the grant this year which means for Hospice Lumina a shortfall of 200,000 euros and unless this can be found could cause the closure of the Hospice project.
Cry in the Dark here in the U.K may now have to also cut our grant to both of the projects as we have lost the income from two school trips that were scheduled for the end of May beginning of June which financially is a considerable loss of income.
We are indeed hoping and praying that the volunteer trips in July and August will still go ahead and that everything will start to get back to normal. Otherwise this will be another terrible blow to us and the projects.
The financial implications for Cry in the Dark could be disastrous and mean the possible end of our work in Romania and the closure of Cry in the Dark here in the U.K and its projects in Romania.
If you are able to help us at this time, it would be more then greatly appreciated.
You don’t even have to leave your homes to do it. (Not that we can at the moment!)
Just an internet connection or a mobile phone will work.

Work in Romania –
Our exciting and innovative projects help us to bring hope and change to the lives of children and families in Romania. We spread life-changing love through our home for children with special needs, programmes and projects within a Roma community, advocacy, care and our hospice in Romania.
There are so many ways for you to get involved – both from right where you are and by volunteering in Romania itself!
Our sponsor a child Prieten programme allows you to connect directly with our hospice in Romania through sponsoring one of the children and developing a personal relationship via letters and cards. To sponsor a child through our charity is a real way of showing our children that somebody cares about them.
Volunteering in Romania
If you’re interested in actually volunteering in Romania, we offer opportunities from Christmas volunteering to gap year volunteering on a 2-3 month trip.Replica rolex 41mm replica tag heuer replica hublot sale faux buy rolex knockoff cartier
