Mănăstirea Cașin, Bacău County, Romania, October 11, 2021
The Romanian Orthodox Onești Archdiocese’s project to provide housing to needy families is well underway.
On October 7, the first of seven social housing units of the House of Joy project was blessed and given to a family with seven children in the village of Mănăstirea Cașin in eastern Romania, the Archdiocese reports.
The eighth child is on the way.
The house was built on land offered by the local village council. The house was built in just seven months, with construction totaling $18,700 (80,000 lei).
The house is fully furnished and equipped, offered to the family for an indefinite period, provided the parents take care of the children and their schooling.
The house was built by the Archdiocese in cooperation with local parishes and associations.
In August, it was reported that the Romanian Diocese of Maramureș and Satu-Mare is building housing for flood victims in northwestern Satu-Mare County.
