At Open Fields Foundation, we partner with communities and other organization to create sustainable impact, empowering and inspiring people to make personal changes for a better world.
For the last 15 years, one of our most reliable partner has been Bóthar. Through this partnership, Open Fields was able to give a helping hand and lift out of hunger and extreme poverty thousands of families from the poorest areas of Romania. Throughout the 2016 fiscal year alone, with support from Bóthar, we have donated a number of 123 heifers, and 183 families have benefited from this valuable gift.
Such is the example of Clapau Vasile and Sofrona, from Dumitra village, parents of eleven children, happy recipients of an Irish heifer from January 2016, have considerably improved their nutrition, and have managed to save money otherwise spent in buying milk for their family.
“This heifer has brought a ray of hope on the cloudy sky above our family. Thank you for trusting us with such a great blessing. We want to thank the Irish farmers for their generosity and we promise to do the same when time comes for us to pass on the blessing to others. I never thought we could have something to give to others. This cow means food on the table and milk in the cups that were empty so many days… this cow also means money for the children’s school supplies! From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!”
said Sofrona with a big smile on her face.
