The primary aim of Humanity at Heart

is to help the most disadvantaged people

in Romania to escape the cycle of social

and economic poverty into which they are locked. 

We work alongside partners in Romania

to combat child poverty, help vunerable

and poor communities, improve the

lives of elderly people living in poverty,

and help those with special needs live

full and happy lives.

We are a Sussex-based independent charity, working alongside our partners in Romania to combat child poverty, help vulnerable and poor communities, improve the lives of elderly people living in poverty, and help those with special needs live full and happy lives. By focusing on small, grass-roots projects we aim to help those people who are hidden or discriminated against in society, or overlooked by governments or larger charities.
