Caritas Catolica has recently received 3 infrared thermometers from the local administration of Oradea. The new equipment can measure temperatures precisely from a safe distance without contact, which is very important for the security of our employees, beneficiaries and volunteers.
The donation is of great value, and it will be very useful because our colleagues give daily help to 270 homecare patients, 132 elderly home residents, over 300 social kitchen beneficiaries, but also to the volunteers who shop and acquire medicine for old people on daily basis during the virus crisis. With these thermometers we can rapidly and efficiently control those who work in “the front lines” and might come in contact with infected people. We would like to express our gratitude to the City Hall of Oradea.
Representatives of Caritas Catolica association have handed out donations consisting of non-perishable food and clothes to the Ciore Roma Foundation specialized in helping underprivileged roma communities in Bihor county, Romania. They have received 200 portions of canned mushrooms, 200 jars of apple puree and approx. 900 kilos of second hand clothes, originating form holland.
The leader of the foundation, Mr. Lakatos Janos has declared that the donation will be used to create food packages for gypsy communities in Oradea, Sacueni and Diosig localities. The foundation has reached out to Caritas as the orthodox Easter is approaching and they wished to bring a little hope in the lives of these poor communities on the religious holiday of rebirth.
