Dave Bennett and his team of optoms visited Petrosani a week ago. I hope to get a full report of his visit soon, but in the meantime, you can see from the photos below how new volunteers have been given training to make up glasses. The Screening continues to have a positive impact on the local community, not only by giving free glasses, but by building trust and as a great way to meet the local people, find out about their problems and decide the best way in which to help them.

Established in 1990, in response to the media coverage of conditions in Romania following the Revolution, Humanity at Heart started by sending out lorry loads of aid to the orphanages. Subsequently our focus has changed to long term community based projects.
