We thank God for giving us this opportunity to serve others and we can work with donors to further support the projects.” Anca Tepuș, Psychologist ADRA Romania

”The pandemic took us all by surprise. And beyond the social and material difficulties, there were a series of psychological manifestations, difficult to manage for our beneficiaries (anxiety, stress, depressive elements, difficulties in managing relationships with children or partners, etc.). We have been and will be close to them, further, not only materially (through the project “Humanitarian support COVID-19”), but also psychologically. To overcome all other obstacles, we need a clear mind, good adaptability, and a focus on the things we can change, as well as the acceptance of those beyond our sphere of influence. There will be a stage (post-pandemic), in which the beneficiaries will need emotional support to adapt to a new reality. And we are close to them.” Alina Bordas-Mohorea, Psychologist/Psychotherapist ADRA Romania.
